The Last Storm
by Brian Lawson
It stormed this evening.
It was invigorating.
The wind bent the trees and turned the rain into a water wall.
The hail fell as if God had just emptied his ice tray.
The thunder roared like a grizzly in the sky.
The lightning flashed sharp shards of knife-like light.
It seems that summer saved the best one for last.
