The Storm

Deep in sleep, in dreams
in what feels like an eternity
Lost from reality
from its troubles

And then great flashes of light
invade those dreams
Like stars close up
pure blinding whiteness

Quickly followed by a rumble
then a loud roar
Like explosions in a warzone
thunder making itself known

This itself is chased
by a downpour hard and fast
Falling from the angel’s lair
the heavens have opened

Quick successive booms
follow again the shocking white
As nature’s anger continues on
throughout darkest small hours

Waking up many a soul
jolted awake with a shock
Thinking something badly wrong
now calmed and enthralled
