Thirst Satisfied

My head is pounding

Matching the beat

Of each thunderclap

My shoes are drenched

And slosh with every step

Hail bounced off my car

And my umbrella is at home

This summer storm

Has ruined my day

But think of the flowers

Not torn to shreds

This is the drink

They have needed

This terrible day

Has a positive spin

When days later

The roses will bloom
