After The Rain

Dear Readers,

This poem was written after a storm passed through my city last night. Please enjoy!

After the Rain

All night long
Thunder and lighting
Cross the heavens

All night long
The wind howls
And trees fall

Hour by hour
The night passes on

All night long
I wait and listen
To the cry of the storm

Dawn rises
Little by little
Filled with sweet song

I glance out my window
And I find the world quiet and still

 Droplets hang from leaves
The air still
And heaven is silent

Sweet smells fill the air
A freshness to the soul
A calmness to the mind
