By Charles Robert Lindholm 

I see the dark clouds gathering
ominously warning
the wise to flee
to find shelter
from the coming storm 

Precursors to a dramatic
display of Mother Nature’s
anger in the sky 

flashes of lightening
crashes of thunder
and pounding
showers of rain
driven by the wind 

tearing across
the landscape
cutting scars
on the earth
that will take time
to heal 

Mother Nature’s
anger leaves
homes broken
and battered
with lives lost
while others survive
as tears fall
from their eyes
and they are
left to wonder
