Evening Rain

A brief heavy downpour
-almost tropical-
stops
.......................................suddenly

dark clouds lift
a pale rainbow

swifts
dance across the sky

chimney pots
glow with evening

distant thunder
later becomes a storm

I like storms, do you? Love your description of a fast moving one.

Beautiful poem. I love tropical type storms. Sorry if you are still getting rain and clouds this summer.

The sudden summer storm is one of my favorite things in the whole world. You really capture it here. I like the layout of lines too.

I could just see it and feel it!

No such storms here .. just the Pacific NW drizzles!

People are drawn to storms. So awesome, powerful, beautiful.
Most things that are beautiful are dangerous, I find.
