Lightning and Thunder

BOOM, CRACK!

They strike in unison

BOOM,CRACK!

Lightning and thunder

 

BOOM, CRACK!

The storm is like light

BOOM, CRACK!

But only in the dark

 

BOOM, CRACK!

They form a beat

BOOM, CRACK!

Like the sound of drums

 

BOOM, CRACK!

To me it’s a delight

BOOM, CRACK!

But to others it’s a fright

 

BOOM!

CRACK!

Author’s Note:

This poem is about how when a thunder storm comes I always enjoy the sound and rhythm it has. A storm is interpreted in many different ways but to me it’s peaceful and makes me want to huncker down and listen, like a good movie or book. I grew up in Austin, Texas but when I was maybe eight years old we moved to California and I always missed the big storms and loud thunder with bright lightning. A big thunder storm has always been one of my favorite days and I love them even more when I get to see them at home.
