The wind is blowing
and dark clouds is showing.
Like an angry beast, the sky growls
with more fierceness than a wolf's growl.
Lightning is streaking across the skies,
with such a passion that belies.
The earth must be mad at someone
because she has brought out dark clouds
and covered up the sun.
Her heart must be filled with grief and pain
because, the dark clouds,
is fixing to release the rain.
My heart goes out to mother earth
because I love her
and I came from her dirt.
I hate to see her like this
because, my heart is filled with heavy bliss.
The wind velocity has increased
as the clouds look more like sheets.
The lightning has extended to the ground
and the thunder has reached deafning sounds.
Finally, the rain is pouring from the skies
as all the pain and frustrations
is pouring from her eyes.
All of her emotions are pouring down on me,
causing me to feel more downbeat.
Man, I feel like dying
and I'm not lying
because mother earth,
is deeply hurt,
and she's crying.

Nate~
I like this piece.
Very strong emotions to go right along with the strong weather conditions you're describing.

As badly as we need the rain here in Florida, I sure don't want the wrath of the storms to come with it.

Perhaps she's vented and when she comes to call she'll remember to 'mind her manners.'
No temper tantrums needed.

Great piece of writing by you, my friend.

You've described perfectly the kind of weather we have been having here this past week. Pretty wicked at times. Nice to see you again, Nate!

"The earth must be mad at someone..cause she's brought out dark clouds...and covered up the sun."   Very nice Nate...sometimes it does seems this way...the changes in the weather do affect our moods.   James
