The Storm

The low rumbling of approaching thunder
The sky beginning to darken
A light drizzle filling the air

The rumble of thunder getting closer
The rain changing into a steady down pour
The sky turning jet black, packed with clouds

The wind pushing at the trees, coming in gusts
The sky lit up as lightening streaks across it
Thunder booms, causing the windows to shudder in fear

The rain coming in waves, pounding the dry, cracked Earth
Lightening strikes in to front yard, far too close for comfort
Tension fills the air as thunder shakes the house
Rain pounds on the tin roof, drowning out every other sound

The storm has arrived.
