A darkening sky
Presages promised raindrops
As a storm rolls in

Rain pelting downward
Deafening crash of thunder
Lightning lights the sky

Brave majestic trees
Standing tall and proud resist
Mother Nature’s wrath

Hurricanes swirling
Palm trees bending and twirling
Waves erase the beach

The rhythm of life
Punctuated with pauses
And cymbals clanging

Wild angry waves
Howling wind and blinding rain
This storm too shall pass

Drip, drip, the rain drops
Splattering the wet sidewalk
Soaking people’s shoes

Palm fronds frame the moon
as birds patrol salt-water
lagoon’s tree-lined shores
