Summer Storm

by James W. Spain, II

The distant thunder
slowly growing in intensity

as it marches forward
and rolls over the miles towards me.

A flash of lightning joins in
to enhance the uneasiness of the approaching storm

as the sky opens up and the first
drops of rain impact the ground loudly.

The storm is coming towards me
quickly now and threatening

as it finally arrives
with torrential rain, lightning and wind.

The first cold air to be felt
in weeks gently creeps into my window

chasing away the heavy
damp air.

The storm moves towards the next town
the rumble growing distant.
