Lightning Storm

Bright neon blue
Slices the black air above
Every few seconds--
The sky’s seizures.

BOOM!

BOOM!

Hail continually crashes
Into everything, 
Denting cars,
Sheds,
Breaking windows.

The wind brings trees down.
Powerlines liter the roads.
Debris flies everywhere
This way
And that.

Then as quickly as it started 
It stops.
The skies clear,
The stars shine,
But the damage is done.
Weather has won.

Time to rebuild,
Time to prepare for the next storm.
