Dreary Days


Rise and shine

You look outside

No sun today

The sky is dark


Storm clouds roll in

As the thunder starts

Echoes of terror bounce from cloud to cloud

Soft grumbles at first



The earth is shook

One swift dash of lightning

Pierces the sky


Then nothing

The storm clears

A blue sky emerges from the chaos

Sun stretches through the clouds like new life emerging from an egg


A light shower follows

A sun shower

Peaceful and calm

Ridding every memory of the storm from our minds
