The clouds trudge across the sky
until the sun goes down.
When the rain comes
the thunderbolts strike all that try to escape
from their blue prison.
Some days, thunderclouds close in
with a terrible temper
and a snarl dark as night.
Other days, the sky seems clear
until the twilight
Do not anger thunderbolts-
the lightning soon will strike.
You cannot see them lurking
in the darkness
of the night.
