A Gray Cloud
While darkness takes over the horizon,
A light drizzle begins over the city.
The joys of many soon turn into screams of fear,
As large gusts of wind make even the trees tremble with fright.
A girl grasps her teddy bear, hugging it close,
Runs and frantically pulls the bed sheets over her head.
The sounds of raindrops violently slamming against the windows,
Thunder making an earsplitting crack, while lightening intensifies the sky.
Slowly and steadily, the rains begin to proceed beyond the skyscrapers,
Taking away with it all the immense effects.
Shutters are opened along with the doors, as people scramble out of homes;
Confusion, then understanding, finally Joy take over their expressions,
The brilliant storm gliding farther away, until fading completely.
As they look around the beauty of what it left behind dazzles them,
Trees having been restored to a bright green radiance,
Flowers emitting an extraordinary glow,
And the sun finals the touch, breaking through the clouds,
Allowing its rays to warm all those watching and admiring our beautiful Earth.
Far away in the distant country side, a gray cloud begins darkening the landscape.
