There are many storms in life. Who is to say which is worse. The emotional or the natural?

I could feel what it would bring,
long before it was a tangible thing.
A subtle pressure brought to bear,
a heaviness that prevailed in the air.

My senses were touched just a bit.
A feeling of change and turmoil hit.
Something was forming and I knew,
a bad thing was beginning to brew.

Suddenly it seemed to call out to me.
Look over here and you'll begin to see.
Like a huge puzzle being put together,
came the changes in the weather.

First there was a white cloud or two,

Oooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I love this one; you capture the storm in perfect imagery! My favorite lines:

"The rain fell like glass, stinging the skin..." and "Electricity sizzled and cut the dense air..." YES! That's just how it was, last night. LOL We got seven inches of rain here. :)

MY ultimate compliment: Wish I'd written this: a StormSpinner kind of write!

Stay safe, the sun will be out...tomorrow :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
