***a Stormy Day***

It was a sunny winter afternoon…
In the sky along with setting Sun
I could see the rising moon…
I was reading a novel sitting in my room…
When a chunk of windy air
Gifted few maple leaves on my lap
In turn, it took the cap away from my head…
I felt breeze, I went out…
No… Not again, I just shout…
Though, I could see lights in the sky…
But couldn’t see a single bird to fly…
The day became dark very soon…
And a chunk of cloud
Blotted out the full circle moon…
A blustery wind started blowing
Thunders started booming
The thick clouds started roiling…
Could not see any stars in the sky
Plants in my garden were no more looking high…
My voice choked in fear…
And crackle lips became wet in tear
In a moment, rain started with big drops…
Soon the hailstones started pop…
The storm dampens me from inside…
I wanted someone, by my side…
I started looking for my pet…
Alas, I could not get him back…
