The Storm

I know we're in spring and getting closer to summer but I love to think of rainy days when the warmer weather sets in, it kind of gives me a lift to think the hot weather won't last forever! You can tell I prefer winter : )

I wrote this poem after the last rainfall a few weeks ago...

The Storm

Thunder's growling
In the skies above,
Lightning joins in
Like a hand in glove,
A spectacle to look at,
What a display...
Rain has now
Come out to play!
What is first a pitter patter
Is soon a downpour,
When I look at the heavens
I'm sure there'll be more...
One great sheet of sky
Flashes with lightning;
I hear crashing thunder,
It's all quite so frightening!
Yet as I watch and marvel
At such a wondrous sight
From this side of the door
I enjoyed the storm tonight!

  1. Doreen, congratulations for this lovely ode to a storm, your point of view of a storm is exactly like mine.
    Thanks for sharing this poem with us.

  2. Hello Doreen, thank you for your visit...very beautiful this pictures...

  3. I shall read this poem out in the garden in the hope that it rains a little. Saves me having to go out and water the plants every other day.

    Hope you're keeping well.

    God bless.
