Thunder is all around
A crescent Thunder Moon holds the morning sky
Lightning bolts scatters the bent sky
As it cascades down the edges of our sky dome
Sky winds tumble through with gusty cheers
Tree tops nod to each other and
Then stand true
Busily waiting for a new round
Robins and cardinals sit noticeably still
Waiting for storms to pass
Feathers all tucked in
And sheltered by oak leaf shutters
If you listen carefully you can hear the winds coming
As it travels over the lake waters
There in the distance
You can see rain splashing the top of Lake Ann
The wind and rain runs to meet you
And then rushes right past
This August Arkansas rain storm
Passes to the North and East
Bound for new shores and new Ozark mountain ridges
Washing mother earth
