The Approaching Storm

the howling winds blow in the dead of night

As the lights flicker giving us a fright

The booms so loud you want to run and hide

Children snuggle close in fear

And ask momma when will it end

Rain pouring down

Hitting the window like bricks

While the clashing of the thunderstorms continue

Then silence fills the home as the power gets knocked out

You can suddenly hear how wicked and loud it all really is in the listening ear

The sound of the thunder sounding so near

You reach for a candle and lanterns and your weather radio

Hoping your generator will kick in

It’s darker black than any other night

As the deep black of the clouds moves in over head

Severe thunderstorms the weather said

As you fear the dark again
