Suddenly: Thunderstorm on the River

blue heron and egret pelahatchie bay april 20

The sun warms the land

birds bathing in the bay

all is well

on this warm winter day


Suddenly there is a loud noise

booming in the sky

a quick cold wind

wildlife fleeing by


Thunder accompanied by lightening

the rain pounding down

a world of wonder appears

filled with sound


In the river

the drops sound like a drum

creating small waterfalls

then sounding like a hum


Small bugs appear

some having light

brilliant in color

a spectacular sight


As quickly as it began

the storm suddenly ends

the birds return

spring is around the bend
