Summer Thunderstorm

The twilight sky
appears angry
due to the formation
of grey mottled clouds
disrupting the setting sun

A thunderstorm
threatens to approach
with a booming voice and
lightening staff
as it marches
from the northwest

Trees looming
like shadows
against a purple canvas
reach with scraggly arms
to retain the last bit of light

What is the
fate of my part
of the world?

Night descends
as crickets
desperately chant
beckoning the rain
to pour

It is time
to retreat to the
comfort and safety
of home
