River Storm

Go down

River Storm Empty River Storm

Post  Sue McDonald on Tue Apr 03 2012, 06:01

Sitting here in darkness
silence all around
just a flicker of a candle
and rain hitting the ground

Movement of the houseboat
as the wind she picks up speed
wildlife tucked up in their homes
along the river side

Lightening's doing its damage
thunders rolling around
nature fearing strikes of light
as it's power hit's the ground

Branches snap and bend
along the river's edge
water rising with the rain
seasonal flooding trend

Sitting here in silence
darkness all around
hardly hearing anything
my heart the only sound !

I love watching as the lightening bolts streak across the sky. How powerful and beautiful in its verocity. I liked your poem.
