A Stormy Day

A normal sunny day begins
Black clouds have just rolled in
The sun will hide behind them
Signs of a storm to come

With winds so strong, they begin
Churning the leaves about
communication of all goes out
Signs of a storm to come

We rush for cover to protect
Things we love and care for
We beg and plead in total fear
Signs of a storm are near

It’s almost scary 
Day becomes night
Flowers close, birds disappear
Signs of a storm in sight 	

The rain and wind are here
We sit and wait till silence comes
We open the door and see its destruction
Signs of a storm gone by

    Beautifully written poem. The imagery is simply flawless. I love the flow and the rhythm. And love the form of it in free verse because you certainly expressed it here with this remarkable poem. Well done!!
