Southern Summer Storms
Storm Clouds Through Trees
Violent Rainstorms of Summer
Unexpectedly, large raindrops fall, slapping her face,
As though the tongue of a Labrador would against its owner’s face.
Yes, the heat of the summer in the south inevitably produces
Violent rainstorms emerging with such intensity,
Then vanishing just as suddenly as they had appeared;
Resulting in steamy vapors rising low and ghostly
Out of the city’s sewers and from the asphalt itself.
The whole city seemingly playing the backdrop of a horror film,
Or even the stage of a huge rock concert.
Expeditiously, the heat regains it authority.
Come, do these violent rainstorms,
cooling things off a bit!
