Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'd die today

The dark sky
Moans in releif
As he opens his mouth
Releasing a continuous rainfall.

The heavy raindrops
Laugh with joy
As they descend
From the clouds above.

The ground
Soaks up every drop
Savoring each momment

Crying leaves
Gently, swiftly
Float down
From captivity.

An enthusiastic wind
Teasing and tickling
Everyone within reach.

Lightening dances
Across the sky
For attention.

It's quiet.
Everything has stopped.
The sun peeks out of the hills.
The birds hop from the trees.
Ending the beautiful storm.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem in my Spoken Word class after school. At the time there was a nasty storm going on. In the middle of class, the lights flicker and shut off. Of course, everyone freaks out, but I instantly grab my poem book and head to the window. 10 minutes later, "A Beautiful Storm" happened.

wow i was absolutely in love with this until the very last line. I think you give away too much with it, by the end of it most people probably realize what it's about, leave that little aura of mystery. Other than that AWESOME piece, keep writing
