Write: Summer Scenes

We seemed to have our first big summer storm last night.  I don't live in Tornado Alley, just like I don't live in the Great Plains, but we are close enough that it's the same thing.  Summer storms are fun and scary things.  The thunder booms big and powerful, followed by lightning that streaks across the sky like it's noon instead of midnight.  Luckily, I didn't hear of any tornadoes nearby this time. 

For today, take a few minutes and list what kind of weather you experience in summer.  It could be weather where you are, or your favorite type of summer weather, or what kind of weather you WISH you were having in summer.  Choose one and write on that subject for ten minutes.

Here we go!

Beyond the glass turned
to a mirror by the electric light
the wind brushes branches against the siding.
A boom, a shake, and the windows rattle.
The world illuminated for one brilliant second
as if noon didn't want to go to sleep
and instead, played in a summer storm.
