This poem threatened to be a run-on, sort of like the storm which moved across East Texas this morning, so I used a modified limerick trick to final it; bring it to closure. Not sure it worked. You be the judge. Anyway, until 1995, I lived on the west coast. Except for South Lake Tahoe (5 years), I never saw "weather." Texas has "WEATHER" and I love all of it! Father Above has a special protection for fools and idealistic poets...


Rain Rain Rain

by Ted L Glines

Thunder-beings bowling strikes

in Father's lanes above the grey

thunder rumbling balls a-rolling

gods are laughing - gods at play

fists of wind upon my trailer

pictures shaking on my walls

lashing rain upon my roof

dark clouds cloaking heaven's halls

white blaze of lightning

!!!CRACK!!! and rolling thunder

as Father bowls another strike

and heaven's pins explode asunder

alert !!!ALERT!!! tornado warning

run for cover - nurse your fright

but Father smiles - says not to worry

there will be no deaths tonight

be at ease - enjoy this sight

love the rain and love the thunder

fills my heart and mind with wonder

gods are playing - pure delite!

I like it better when a mean storm subsides, and the remaining sounds of rain can soothe my worried soul...
Mom always told us the angels were bowling when we'd scream in thunder...STRIKE! I used to hide under the bed with the housekeeper! LOL!
Loved it!
Love and Peace~

The weather has been rough here in SE Texas, this morning. I love the unique nature of this poem; the bowling references are awesome, too, Ted.

Very nice! Stay safe and dry!!!

You wrote this for me, didn't you, Ted? Texas definately has weather - crazy - yesterday, 75 degrees, right now, at 10:09 a.m., 40 and falling - tornado watches all night last night, today, maybe ... snow????? Flip, flop, flip, flop - LOL God's power and beauty displayed in the storm, but does He have to be so SCARY (especially when tornado warnings are out)?? An excellent write, enjoyed this one.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla the StormSpinner
