the clouds roll in
like waves upon the shore 
but there is no retreat
the clouds hang low and heavy
a cold zephyr blows
yet the sky is unwavering
a lone bird takes flight
dark wings fluttering skyward
the creature pierces the clouds
and in one thunderous clap
the sky cracks open
and an ocean pours out

    1. Thank you 😊 Yes, I was outside on our property watching the coming storm when a large bird took flight and disappeared into the clouds. The rain literally gushed out at that moment! Nature provides the best inspiration for poetry 💦
