Lots of water Lots of light Lots of sounds In the dark of night Spring is now Summer is next Storm season is here Which, I detest
I know rain is water And, thunder is noise It's not that alone That makes me unpoised It's all the wind And, all the lightening Mixed with other elements That I find quite frightening
It makes me anxious It's something I fear I don't like bad weather It makes me scared Many people like storms For their beauty of nature I don't see it that way I see them as danger
The threat that they bring The damage they can do How could you not fear something That can possibly bring harm to you? The potential they have The things they can take away Like your home & your family Why wouldn't you be afraid?
I don't mind a general storm Those are okay It's the severe weather That brings panic my way I know it seems silly I know I should be brave None of us can help The fears we obtain

Wonderful poem. I both fear and am fascinated by storms, however, I like to know I am safe when they happen.
