Gully Washer's Whooossshhhhh

Grumble-rumble raises hairs on my arms.
Air so crisp it crackles lightening forms.
Whoop the wind scrambles and mell pells,
the stationary earth shivers before it fells.

Scrubbed clean like a naughty, naughty, child,
the twigs and brush scatter, the cat's beguiled.
Cone flowers pink petals lap dance the lawn.
Gray chittering squirrels hide 'tween rooted forms.

Whhhhhoooooosh the gully washer's display,
the sizzling pop of  the auto’s fine splay.
The gutters are gargeling spitting a flume,
and, ah the relief from heat such a boon.

Mother nature in all her majesty
has made the day just right for me!
