As the rain slightly pounds,
so does my fear.
The lightning then flashes,
and my thoughts are so clear.

The trees start to bend.
I know what is coming.
Now it is quiet.
Except for the humming.

My friends aren't sure
Exactly what to expect.
But I hear people talking.
I'm afraid they're correct.

As the rain slightly pounds,
my heart now does too.
The lightning then flashes,
for the twister's debut.

The author's comments:
"June." was inspired by the tornado that went through my town on June 11th, 2008. I was at a camp and we were all in the basement of the campus dorms. Councelors were telling us "It's alright. It's not coming our way." Wrong.
