STORM
(5/14/10)


tiny flashes
on the far
horizon
mark
the start

soon
the sky
darkens
and muffled
rumblings
are heard

suddenly
an outburst
of electricity
and sound
envelops
the proximate
surroundings

then
a deluge
of anger
rains upon
the innocent
victims of chance
soaking them
in her
wrath

all
of the typical
alerts were heard
so they shouldn't
feel shocked
or surprised

they would
have been wise
to take precautions
at the first
signs
of annoyance

while concerned
no one expected
such a ferocious
direct hit

a temporary lull
allows an opportunity
of escape

they run

outside
the sun
shines brightly
on a beautiful
world

inside
she fumes
fueling another
cold front
of coming
hostility
