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