Day twenty two of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write about nature, since we are observing earth day.
At the end of a hot and draining day,
It’s a relief to see a cloudy sky.
Clouds that bring an early end to the day.
Flashes of lightning, brightening the night sky.
People run around, panic in the air,
Trying to find shelter from harmless drops.
You wonder why it is such a big scare,
The city’s under siege till the rain stops.
It’s only the kids who seem to enjoy,
Apart from those who are still young at heart.
We must have forgotten the little joy,
Of playing in the rain with all your heart.
