What do you see April 2

The gods are angry, just look up at the sky

See that lightning with fire on the side

Feel that rumbling deep in your bones

Count the seconds from lightning to thunder

The lightning is your warning

The thunder lets you know

How close the storm is and when it will blow

There could be a torrential downpour

Saturating all and more

The storm could disappear without any notice

Or stay for days flooding everything with slowness

    Oh yes, the storm can take either way, we just don’t know what it will do. Such a beautiful write for this prompt Susan, thank you.
