Favorite Quote:
"Love sees roses without thorns."- German Proverb

Through the minimal opening,
In the treetops above,
The sight is not sunshine,
But rather charcoal-gray clouds.

Wind screams in the leaves.
As thunder laughs at the sky.
Followed by lightning.
Who snaps a picture of the scene.

Scattering water drops,
From cloud-shaped shower heads.
Gather and puddle,
In the bathtubs below.

Night blankets the sky,
And water flow shuts off,
While the moon and stars,
Return from hiding.

Later on,
A towel comes into the hands of the sky.
Not only to dry up the rain,
But to give sunlight for a new day.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem and as I was writing it, something that normally never happens...happened.... I fell in love with what I was writing. I think it was because of the way I was twisting so general as the topic of nature, specifically that of a thunderstorm, into the some of the things that a typical human being does in their life.
