Across the pallid darkened skies
swift skiffs of cloud course
along a windswept path,
trailing small frozen balls of crystal moisture, that break apart while rolling haphazardly
until the air around absorbs
the straggling cloud remnants

The sky stills in silence
a lovers breath caught in anticipitation,
then jaggedly, lightning pierces the night
freezeframing the outlined clouds against
the utter blackness of a moonless sky
ingraining the picture of false light
onto the forming torrents

Hanging in suspension the world waits
until a cold mettalic crack signifies
the entry of a booming giant, crushing the air
before it as the implosion of air smacks
into itself, scattering in myriad directions
calling the attention of all those
laying before the storm

Slowly the long summer grass begins to stir
the light breezes lifting the humidity
up into the clouds, while tree tops dance
rythmically, under the guide of windborne hands
all at the beckon of the coming storm
which waits to eagerly envelop
the land tremling before it

Oh man, a true sense of summer storms! Most excellent imagery! I could smell this one, I could see the lightening crack across the sky, and summer breeze.  AAAAAhhhhhh, thank you!

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.
