I Love Storm Clouds
By Kate Rauner
Powered by sunlight that traveled through space,
Tumbling up from a heavy wet base,
Warm air and cold air parcels collide,
Dynamics and moisture heaped in the skies,
Piled by mountains above the terrain,
Clawing the ground with fingers of rain,
Strong sudden downdrafts spread out below
Bending the trees in cooling outflow,
Pouring down energy, all through the night
Measuring distance with thunder and light.
I love storm clouds.
