The Thunder Cloud

Kari enjoys writing poetry. There is a certain freedom in poetry because you don't always have to follow the rules.

Thunder Clouds

Thunder Clouds

We are, each one,

A tiny part of humanity

Just as a raindrop

Is a tiny part of the cloud.

Separately we each are tiny,

But, together we are

The thunder cloud.

Together we storm and rage.

We thunder loudly.

Together we send

A deluge on this earth.

We can choose,

War or peace.


We want to be apart,

Storm and rage on our own.

Each raindrop going

Its own way.

But, when we break

Apart, we lose our power.

We become one

Little, tiny raindrop again.

Let us join together

To make a cloud.

A giant thunder cloud

We can send a deluge of

Love over the earth.

A healing rain that brings life,

And ends in a

drizzle of happiness.

Together we can watch

The rainbow of promise,

Hope and love which follows.
