Shaft of light

Written by: Joseph May

 The arrival of daybreak resembled the dusk
Dark clouds covered the sky from east to west

A rumble of thunder sliced through the air
Accentuating the start of a stormy affair

Then the rain came pouring down
Making a loud pitter patter sound......

The downpour  stopped after a while
And we thought the sun would peek out and smile

A songbird's melody was a welcome delight
For a split  second the outlook seemed bright

Then in the heavens a wonderful sight
Through the darkest of clouds, burst a  shaft of light!
