Summer Storms

Gathering clouds darken the sky,

As the rain pours down with a sigh.

Lightning flashes through the sky

With thunder rumbling in reply.

Rain drops like waterfalls from the sky,

And the ground drinks it up, thirsty and dry.

The wind tears across the sky,

Causing loose leaves to float, drift and fly.

Soon we see again blue sky,

With sun piercing through with a sigh.

Behold the beauty of nature in the sky,

Where dreams float and drift and fly.

April Showers

The drops fall from the sky,

Welcomed by the dry, cracking ground.

The soil lets out a deep sigh of relief,

While the trees dance in pleasure,

And the flowers laugh with joy.

 

The rain was long awaited,

As nature sought to quench its thirst.

The drops bounce on the leaves,

Glide on the flower petals,

And quiver on the branches.

 

Although the dark clouds are dreary,

The flowers glow after their cleansing shower.

The bushes and trees are alight with color,

The grass is lush and soft,

And the soil is richly filled to the brim.

 

The rain has finally arrived,

And all of nature seems most grateful.

It needed a change from the dry heat,

It needed to be refreshed and replenished,

But sun, please don’t stay away too long.
