#182: Thunderstorm

by Profe Steve

Sweltering.

Sweltering. Sweat drips.

Sweltering. Sweat drips. Move slowly, pray for a cloud

Sweltering. Sweat drips. Move slowly, pray for a cloud To eclipse the sun.

Sweltering. Sweat drips. Move slowly, pray for a cloud To eclipse the sun. Hope grows on the horizon

Sweltering. Sweat drips. Move slowly, pray for a cloud To eclipse the sun. Hope grows on the horizon Building grayness from the west.

A puff of light breeze

A puff of light breeze Ominous gray line towers

A puff of light breeze Ominous gray line towers Sign of building storm

A puff of light breeze Ominous gray line towers Sign of building storm Heat forgotten as lightning streaks

A puff of light breeze Ominous gray line towers Sign of building storm Heat forgotten as lightning streaks Crisscross the lowering sky

Trees sway angrily

Trees sway angrily As the breeze becomes a howl

Trees sway angrily As the breeze becomes a howl Pellets of ice cascade

Trees sway angrily As the breeze becomes a howl Pellets of ice cascade As cannon roars shake the ground

Trees sway angrily As the breeze becomes a howl Pellets of ice cascade As cannon roars shake the ground Nature fears the storm’s treatment.
