WAO NOON STORM

Written by: romeo naces

.

at high noon 
came the typhoon;
zigzagging sparks of lightning
crisscrosssed storm clouds
that cracked and burst 
as thunder roared
ominously.


rain gushed 
down in torrents
and, like furious waterfalls,
hit everything, anything below,
soaking the earth,
drenching all 
thoroughly.


after a while, 
it was gone;
in the fresh stillness,
wet greenery glistened in the sun,
insects frolicked free,
pleased, grateful,
delirious.
