Idyll of the coming rain This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

February 27, 2018

Dark patches of clouds in the sky
Rain, only now beginning to pour
Friends depart home, saying their goodbye
Leaves take flight, scraping across the concrete floor

I observe all in amazement
I hear the rains resistance
Only little droplets hitting the pavement
Laughter in the distance

The clouds like moving mountains in the sky
The trees beginning to shiver
A rustle in the bushes goes by
Then, even I begin to quiver

But I hesitate to go inside
I feel it coming…
Like the great flood, filled with pride
I face the beast instead of running.

The cold air in my lungs
Standing on the porch
The violent wind comes
The clouds begin to approach

All goes shush
Biblical and divine
People rush
A chill up my spine

The tension heightening
Building up courage
And finally, Thunder. Lightening...
Absolute pourage.
