A Midwestern storm
full force explodes
shaking the windows
drowning the earth
releasing the tension
of hot air and cool.

A miracle of change
covers the land
cleansing the earth
as thick air fades
cool takes a stand.

A stance that crumbles
as morning brings
another humid
summer day.

    This is a great piece! I loved the line, “as thick air fades.”
