Cloudy Skies

Tunnels, funnels, waves and caves

Drifting and sifting high in the sky

Patches that loom and hover

burst and make us run for cover

water that cleanses and sustains

as we dance beneath the rains

Summer Storm Serenade

tree limbs hummed and strummed

a forgotten melody

while leaves jitterbugged to and fro

 ever fresh scent of reckoning

clouds clapped and tapped

begging for more

encore encore

a rumble and the sun hid behind

the power of clouds as

lightening zapped midair

and a chill prickled my arms

pitter patter splat splat

rain joined the symphony of wind

lightening struck a final chord

no encore tonight

dancers bowed and bid goodnight

drip drop the curtain fell

all drifted into the lull of dark

flowered and empowered

they slept til morn

Night Storm

 

Wind ripped and howled like angry dogs

Rain pelted against skin and bone like diving wasps

searching for sweet nectar of wild honey suckle

within a shadowed landscape

Clouds shook hands and leaves danced

while the rest of us remained perplexed

as bitterness drifted out with the fog

The moon smirked at all that played beneath him

Short Spring Shower

Bursts of popcorn kernels scattered across the sky,

darkening as if it had been cooked too long.

The curtain fell, hiding the sun from us,

and with it came the tears pounding upon us.

The wind howled through the desolate pines,

hoping the cattails would join in the serenade.

Clouds danced, kissed and made up,

and the heavens smiled again.
