Dan Hanosh’s The Moon Also Rises
dreams to come and thoughts of tomorrow

The Storm

The air is hot and steamy, something is
About to happen, leaves curl upward toward the
Sky, birds call endlessly for everyone
To listen, a cool breeze blows, the smell of
Rain is in the air, trees become as still
As death, an ominous foreboding is
In the wind, fear of the unknown has enveloped
Everything in its path.

The sky turns black as the darkest night, the
Wind changes direction, strong gusts blow, the
Temperature plummets, trees bending, intermittent
Raindrops explode hitting the ground, the wind
Grows louder with each blow.

The wind is roaring, tree branches bending,
Breaking, ice pellets pelt everything, turning
The ground white, sirens can be heard in the
Distance, the day has become night.

Clouds are raging, growing, moving fast,
Rain is coming down in sheets saturating
The ground, puddles turn to rivers running
Toward the sewers, filling, the river is rising,
Moving fast, growing, overflowing their banks.

The sidewalks are covered
With falling debris, a break in the clouds
Can be seen, the sun shows traces of a
Glimmer of hope, a ray of sunshine peeks
Through the clouds, and the storm has moved on.
