Morning Storms


Dawn’s light obscured

dark clouds roll in


as lightening flashes

thunder roars


heightening the senses

in awe and anticipation


the wind picks up

heavy drops begin to fall


forcing me to seek shelter

resisting the urge


to dance with the rest of nature

in this morning’s storms

The air was so thick and heavy when I went out to my garden this morning, I knew something was about to break in the atmosphere.  It’s been hot, hot, hot, and humid here this past week, and a good thunderstorm is such a sweet release.

Stay dry my friends.  Or wet, whichever you prefer.  😉


To sweet releases…

  3. I was hoping you’d dance in the rain and then send the storm our way!

    • Maybe I’ll dance in it next time. 🙂 I wouldn’t wish ‘storms’ on anyone, but I hope some refreshing rains find you soon – it must be terribly hot down south there too lately. Stay cool, Brad!

    Too hot here too! We need to use more green energy!
    We love thunderstorms… but our little dog, Gabbie, shakes at them in fear!

    • Thanks Tom! 🙂
      Aw, poor little Gabbie. I know how that is – my daughter’s little dog, Teddy, has always been quite frightened of storms too. He can’t hear as well these days, so they don’t bother him as much now.

  12. Hi Jewels, such a powerful post but it sends shudders through me as I’m terrified of thunder and lightening and that’s with a capital T!

    • Thanks, Jean! Thunder and lightening can be frightening when a storm is severe, but mostly it just makes me in awe of the power of nature. I love the sound of thunder rumbling in the distance…
