Five Haiku complete the storm's view. However, each can be read individually.

A Large Billowed cloud

Eats most of the sky above,

and then comes the rain.



Large drops of rain, fall,

as the sun turns to shadows

and the rivers rise.



Crack! --- Flashes occur!

Sounds of thunder rumbling.

Crack! The landscape shines.



Flashes in the sky.

Then Hail falls, coating the land,

as all of life hides.



With morning comes dawn;

cloudless and full of sunshine

is another day.

Nice poem, I especially liked the end - it brings forth the image of someone reflecting on that last notion.

Thanks, I wanted a visual impact that lasted longer than just one Haiku, hope this did the trick.

Very nice! Wow! As a lover of Haiku, this is some of the best I've read in a long while.

Each one shines nicely on its own, but together they paint a great portrait of not just physical storms but the storms of life which as you succinctly put both storms ends and another day lights the dark moment you're going through.

I hope you are proud of what you created. I hope all eyes see this and feel
even JUST half of what I felt. If so, the world would be a better place than before. I'm now a fan!
