Summer Storms

The rain drops fall,
huge and heavy,
pelting the trees and bushes
and flowers

The clouds seemed
to empty themselves
of all the water they held
and yet

More gray clouds
fill the sky,
ready, just waiting for the
right moment

As a soft breeze
stirs the air,
birds chirp and chatter
and fly

Tiny globes of water
cling to leaves
then let go, dripping down
to the ground

A patch of blue
breaks through
but thunder softly rolls,
rain returns…

    You paint a picture with your words of what it has been like this week while I’m camping. Thank you for putting that experience in words.

  2. Lovely poem! Loved this – “The clouds seem to empty themselves” Beautiful rainy day.

    Yes, we are experiencing the same weather but there is the shock factor of continued lightning, Diane. Seems like Mother Nature is rather flamboyant lately. I enjoyed your poem. Who could believe that Eastern Seaboard storms are like Florida ones?

      Diane, if you are interested, I would love to share your poem at my #EmbraceableSummer Gallery Collection. Let me know please. I would need your name and location at the bottom in an image format.
