Green Mountain Thunderstorm..........

Watching rainy mists between the clouds
and being swept on a valley breeze

Part of which will rise again to clouds
or drop through forests with a gentle ease

Only to lie upon the greening moss
untill the streams rise once again
And if you didn't know it by now
The stream...to the storm is a friend

At least here in the mountains with a surprise
of thunder and lightning
I know anywhere there are storms
natures so enlightening

But as the honed edges of an echo roll
away here into the night
I believe that in my morning time
even the rains allright

So let the waters rise .....the thunder shake the
trees and roll away
Because behind those thunderheads
lies the promise of another day

I like this one very much. Even the thunderstorm seems like a friend rolling in and rolling out. and the rain "lying on the greening moss until the streams rise once again..." It really is beautiful. Thanks ahorseback!

Another wonderful poem. The images you create with your words are magical.

Just need to remove the 'i' 'I believe ithat in my morning time' we don't need the extra eye (i) to see the beauty of this one... :-)

This is very well written ahorseback and the beautiful words describe one of nature's most powerful and needed occurrences. This is one of my favorites from your collection.

Ahorseback, I absolutely love the weather...changes...and, particularly...thunderstorms. Exciting, uncontrollable, and beautiful. Lighting up the sky with amazing formations of "fingers" of light; the rolling or abrubt clap and resounding thunder...just love it and always look forward to the storms. They cleanse, replenish and renew...and make my heart beat a little faster. Thank you. UP awesome and beautiful.

I love thunderstorms and rain too dad! This came with age though. Storms and rain cleanse everything. Sometimes I go out on the porch during a storm. Who knows maybe it cleanses the soul too. Beautiful poem though!! Love and hugs always
