Thunderstorm

Out in west Texas

On the wide open prairie

Thunderstorms are fierce.

From miles far away

One can observe their approach

Exhilarating!

But in Florida

Surrounded by lush forest

Lightning surprises.

Rains pound all around

Drumming in relentless force

Crashing thunder booms.

There is no telling

When the next crack will occur 

Heart stopping each time.
