Nature’s Wrath

Distant explosions of light and sound
Carry across the valley
Anticipation stirs the core

Stillness is interrupted by a cooling breeze
Harshly descending from above
Chilling to the bone

Dewy spray is carried on the wind
Torrents quickly follow
Cooling the baked earth

Retreat to the warmth and safety
Let the elements do their worst
I will watch in awe
