approaching thunder

rural towns and farms flooded

pouring rain again


power of lightning

splits mature tree to toothpicks

exploding the air


winds bending treetops

scanning skies for dark funnels

praying there’s no hail


after summer storm passes

a double rainbow appears

    The power of lightning and the wind – Nature is a force to reckon with ~ I hope you & your family are safe from the storm ~

    Gorgeous words and photo. A bit scary, though, for you I’m sure.

    I think if you don’t get too little rain you get too much.. and hail would be the last drop of doom…

    What a perfect turning inside-out for the idea of a rain dance. The weather out there is crazy, and the dancing elements embodying all that crazy are truly something to behold…from a safe distance of course.

    Ha, I am not sure where you live….I want to guess Minnesota, as I have read about some awful storms this spring/summer and the Mississippi continues to rise. Enough already!
