Tornado warning tonight.
Thunder rumbles across the sky Lightning flashes blue and bright Every strike feels nearby
TV showing the danger
Rain splashing down in torrents cats and dogs of something stranger All-in-all a liquid firmament
Winds howl and shift
blowing leaves and garbage can lids The tarp on my firewood begins to lift The thunder scares my grandkids
The rain, hail, and wind will pass
Just like life with stormy patches But storms are a not an impasse We'll get through it with a few scratches
