By Lincoln Hartnett

Brilliant splashes of yellow light
Spewing all corners of the earth
With a radiant glow of scarlet
Then darkness
A shield of gray
Then the rains
Pounding relentlessly
On the cold
Damp
Ground
The wind
Slowly growing
With every passing second
A clap of thunder
Vibrating the water-drenched ground
Then peace
The storm retreats.
