Thunderstorms
Josiah, Age 14, Tianjin, China

Rolling masses of black clouds
Stride imperiously across the sky.
Gazing down upon the world proudly,
Silent, awaiting orders from on high.

Suddenly as if listening to a hidden cue,
Flashes of light spear through the gloom.
Each one painting the clouds’ dark hues,
Bathing the world in a flash of doom.

Seconds pass, an uneasy silence,
Threatening to break any moment.
And then, shattered by a thunderous cadence,
The clouds their furies vent.

Slowly the dark clouds progress anew,
As the winds gust impatiently behind,
Across a new patch of sky to darken the blue,
Leaving the world resigned.
