The lightning seems perniciously close, it’s scary.
The roll of thunder is execrably loud, it’s frightening.
The thunderstorm appears so punishing, one wonders.
The rain is gathering steam, one hopes that if anything, the presence of thunder and lightning means the rain will stop before too long.
That this will be but short-lived,
A mere break rather than
an agonizingly slow and long process leading to who knows what…
The thunderstorm is over but the rain persists.
Hopefully, only briefly.
