Dust Bowl

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

My eyes look upward to the dark sky
So many clouds yet the ground is dry

All around me nothing but the dust
We need rain badly it is a must

Wind is blowing clouds look alive
Thunder and lightning will soon arrive

A gap in the clouds a shaft of light
Here in the darkness shining so bright

Glowing large raindrops begiinning to fall
Liquid excitement soaking us all

Jumping in circles this is a good day
All of our dust has been washed away

Shaft of Light contest
First attempt at a couplet
