Thundershowers last night inspired this one. :-)

the storm is hungry, it must eat to live,
it gorges on heat and humidity.
the storm shovels it in with fork'ed hands,
ever increasing in turgidity.

the storm inhales and chokes on chunks of ice,
and its visage turns a ghastly blue-black.
the storm sees lightning dance before its eyes,
it vomits in resounding thundercracks.

the storm works up a sweat and it rains down,
its appetite, one law it won't rescind.
the storm's stomach growls, it's hungry again,
it sucks up clods of earth in a whirlwind.

the storm finally slakes its hunger binge,
its appetite, for now, under control.
the storm lies down, ready to take a nap,
a diet is not on its protocol.

Fantastic, Karla! It's probably not meant as a children's write, but I'm sure the sophisticated little darlings of our age would just about gobble this one up as much as us adults! And good on you, too, for showing that storm who's boss! Your triumphant pen, that's who! Really strong, visual writing this.... thank you. Kate xx

Oh, my! What wonderful words you have used in this poem; terrific imagery! You clearly are developing into a gifted writer; and you deserve to be published or become famous! May your dreams of becoming published become a reality! I believe in you, and I think you would make one hell of a bestselling author and poet!
