Summer Storm

The sky had turned a greenish grey

Rain poured down sideways

Driven by the howling winds

As the lightening flashed all around

Thunder added to the incessant din

The summer storm was full force

As the hail began to bounce on the pavement

Trees cracked as branches fell

Sparks flew as power lines snapped

And my fear began to rise

I paced

I held a flashlight

I turned up the radio for news

Then just when I thought I would explode in fear

**

I realized the hail had stopped

The rain was lighter

The winds had diministed

And the thunder distant

**

The storm was over

And I stepped outside

To look for the rainbow
