Uproar And After Math For M'Lady Catrina

The thunder growls and threatens war.
Storm clouds parade in massed array
and fierce blue bolts of lightning soar
To try and drive the clouds away.

Just for a moment all is still
The clouds appear prepared to fight.
The lightning bolts strike where they will
and pierce the clouds with spears of light.

The clouds disgorge much needed rain
upon the thirsty earth below
The fields will soon be green again
and once again the streams will flow.

The storm has passed it has moved on.
The air is feeling cool and clean.
But for damage which it has done.
You would not know the storm had been.

Though summer storms strike suddenly
it’s very seldom that they last
They pass over just as quickly
and are forgotten very fast.

Flash floods and overflowing drains
will be remedied speedily.
The storm provided much needed rains
the earth accepted greedily.

We should be grateful not complain
But being human we will do
We lose much less than what we gain.
The fruitful earth will bloom anew.

Such a well written poem in a quatrain verses......lovely imagery done in the craze of nature...lovely...much love and thanks! ! !
Much enjoyed this poem. I couldn't find anything to nit pick about. The poem is in good order throughout, and the rhyme and rythmn are perfect. I felt the healing qualities of the storm. It doesn't matter if it rained every day throughout summer, we'd still have a hosepipe ban in place by September Best Steve
