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.
