Lightening flashing at night over trees

Sweltering heat


Labored breathing

Pressure mounting

in my head

in the skies

Until exploding

like the pounding

in my temples

Thunder crashing

Winds hurling


head over heels


Swaying trees

sweeping the skies

Sounds like the sea

soothing to my soul

Temporary reprieve

from the heat wave

Relief will come

if we survive the storm
