Storm by Jack Beutel (Highly Commended)

I can see clouds rolling on the far horizon,
Everyone preparing for what lies ahead,
Feeling scared for the event that’s coming,
The ground rumbling underneath my feet,
Rain pattering lightly along the ground,
Birds silence with anticipation.

Flood gates closing,
Clouds getting darker by the minute,
Flashing furiously,
Thunderous clashing bangs,
Water rising,
The storm is here.
