Dark clouds form overhead.
They bring a short silence before rain begins to fall.
Chattering raindrops and echoes of thunder.
Winds whip and swirl.
Trees shake and tremble.
Budding leaves have their first taste of rain.
People sit inside watching through the window.
Droplets cling to the glass as they slip and fall.
Eager breaths fog up and obscure.
The large storm clouds steal the sun from the sky.
The thunder boasts loudly and lightning shows off.
I close my eyes and focus on the raindrops.
Soft pitter patter keeps me calm.
