Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the
fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
-Alice M. Swaim

Falling, pouring,
Tears from the sky.

Grey, dismal,
A great big sigh.

Roaring, bellowing,
Flashes of light.

Flapping, cawing,
A large 'V' sign.

Swaying, bending,
Waving goodbye.

Scattering, flying,
Sweeping the lanes.

Howling, lamenting,
Rage boundless.

Alone, unaccompanied,
Lone figure in the rain.
