Short storm

 Short Storm

The wind picked up,

Flagpoles swayed with the trees.

In the distance, over the mountains, 

lightning flashed and thunder rumbled.

People in houses down below,

waited and hoped,

For rain, much needed rain.

It came,

and five minutes later it was gone,

Taking with it the wind,

and the hope that the earth would be cooled,

long enough for us to feel it.
