A storm is coming.
The dark sky grumbles it’s displeasure
In the hot summer day’s heat.
Mammoth, dark, looming clouds swirl together
In angry bubbling clusters
As the storm forms overhead.
A crescendo of ferocity echoes off the horizon.
An ominous foreboding of stormy vengeance.
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
A gray mugginess creeps slowly
Over the sun kissed earth
As the dark clouds cover the golden sphere.
The earth shudders
In the gray chill.
The trees have stilled their dance in the breeze.
The birds have silenced their songs of melody.
The earth waits in muted silence
As the sky decides it’s destiny.
Suddenly! One large drop of water
To the ground.
Soon more drops follow
In a torrential, pounding downpour,
Soon becoming frozen nuggets
Of icy Destruction.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The storm plays it’s own symphony
In a cacophany of ice and water
as trees bend to the relentless pressure of the tumultuous wind
And the earth is pelted with crystal orbs of icy assailment .
Nature is at war with Nature
In this tempermental dance of unpredictability.
The sky bellows out large claps of thunder
and lights up the dark horizon with searing bolts of light,
Flashing, crackling, zapping
In a frenzied display of electric mania.
But the earth stands it’s ground against the storm driven assault
Unwilling to surrender.
And just as suddenly as it came
the storm wanders away like a mischievious child
Leaving the remnants of it’s tirade scattered about
Lo and Behold…..
The dark clouds roll away
to reveal a blue, blue sky.
Warm caressing rays touch the wet weather shaken land.
The rain kissed leaves of the trees drip remnants of the storm
As they sway in the cool breeze.
The birds once again tweet their happy
songs of life.
The storm has passed, the war has been waged.
Once again the earth will renew itself
And go on.
In this endless dance of nature.
