More rainy day inspiration. Another extended metaphor, though, this time, about a storm.

Before it starts,

The sun glares bright

But dims as daytime passes,

Soon enough the only light

Is from behind cloud masses.

 

Then, it begins.

Softly at first.

As a gentle drizzle

But then, a crescendo,

Waterworks unleash.

Splashing at the window.

 

In this rhythm

A willow sways,

Humble leaves a-ripple.

Whilst vain flowers turn away. 

Afraid this frenzy cripples.

 

At the end

Leaves give their bows,

Flowers come out from hiding,

Wind will surely cease to howl,

Nature's rules abiding.

 

Dim lights glow bright,

The curtain closes.

After the passion unfolds.

Who knows

When it will come again.

This answer Heaven holds.
