The Storm

The Storm

Blackened skies as dark as night,
Rolling clouds of rain and wind
Threaten all in its path
With death and destruction.

Blackened skies as dark as night
Illuminated with white flashes of light
Booming with a thundering roar.
Passes across stormy sky.

Blackened skies as dark as night
Weep upon the landscape
With teardrops of rain,
Purge with refreshing waters.

Blackened skies as dark as night
Move on to another place and time.
Leave brightened skies and landscapes
Revitalized from the tempests.
