The Sky Cries
Lightning flashes in the Sky,
Thunder quickly follows.
Sprinkle, drizzle, downpour, then flood-
it begins to rain as the Sky begins to cry.
Lightning is the terror
the Sky sees everyday.
Thunder is the Sky’s heartbeat
as it beats faster and faster and faster.
The rain is the Sky’s tears-
they follow the lightning and thunder.
