Night Sky
Haley, Age 10, Beaverton, OR

The night sky crackles
rumbles, roars.
The thunder is the
cloud lion's roar.
Hail pounds against
windows.
CRACK! The sound
of breaking glass
gets lost in
the
storm's noise.
A man curses out the window,
hoping and wishing
his house
will not be lifted
in
the hands of this fierce storm.
A piercing
scream rattles his thoughts.
Another window
has broken.
It was his wife
who screamed.
He ran towards her,
hoping nothing
had happened.
He found
her
huddled in a corner
weeping.
"It's okay," he said.
She cried more.
Then,
the storm stopped.
All was quiet.
The husband and wife
went outside,
to see their house.
All windows smashed,
door hanging
from its golden hinges.
Even with all that chaos,
the couple
hugged one another,
making the
storm's disaster,
disappear.
