    A rain falling angrily
    lightning frightens the sky
    thunderous crashes assault the ground
    living things tremble and hide
    subsiding to a whisper
    light mist to kiss the grass
    a silent rainbow left behind
    an apology for the noise

      ok this being the second piece of yours that I have had the pleasure of reading I must say you have a gift for describing nature in such a simple yet vivid way. Personally I love thunderstorms and to sit here and read this piece with you painting the storm in my head is quite enjoyable. The flow was great, there is only one change I would make feel free to use or loose this comment though..
    "An angry rain falls
    as lightning frightens the sky"

    something about angrily was just irking me...-John

      I liked this one, it made alot of sense to me and I never thought of the rainbow as an apology for the noise but I now will tell everyone within a 100 foot radius of me that a rainbow is in fact...an apology for the thunder lightning and rain or whatever. reading this is a good change from all the stuff I usually end up reading and it made me unhappily glad. Thanks for the poem.

      awesome poetic description, really kind of makes me remember why I like reading poetry. Not sifting through the tons of depressed free verse nor sifting through the over the top complex thesaurus abused submissions. But just stuff like this, pure. very graceful. Bravo I am impressed.

      I have a hard time writng about rain--I get way to wordy as there is so much going on. You reduced the various elements with simple, yet compelling imagery. I loved "light mist to kiss the grass"-- that makes me hear the whisper soft hiss of some rains--after the thunder and lightning subside. But best i liked the idea of the rainbow being left behind as token of apology--awesome!"a silent rainbow left behind an apology for the noise". Lovin' it, Silver

      I like the way each line is in a staccato form and not punctuated so there is a seamless yet noticeable wraparound - if that's possible. Yes, it is.
    And this anomaly sits well with your subject matter and inevitably it mirrors your own emotional state whilst writing.
    And I too think the apologetic rainbow is a super device and it makes me smile.
    Which is what rain does too.
    More please Angela~

      "a light mist to kiss the grass"
    I love that line alot. The rainbow as an i'm sorry is quite funny. I really like the personality of the piece.

      I see that I have already commented on this, apparently in your early days on the site. Unfortunately, that was at a time when I was not offering as much as I could. For that I apologize, and I shall give a bit more now.
    I read this to Mozart this time. Read it and tired my hand at channelling the emotion and imagry that it evoked. The power was greater. But simple. You do not use complex thought to propel the bullet; it does not abound with expensive diction. Simplicity. In keeping with the spirit of the storm, if you think about it.
    Violins moaning, water falling. Quiet rainbow and silent weeping. The crying done in secret, made public to the indifferent. My God, I sould like you-know-who. Better stop.

      Okay, recent mess aside...

    Angela, this is beautiful. My favorite line... either "lightning frightens the sky" or
    the last two lines. The only thing that jumps out to me is the semi-rhyme of lines 2 and 4... sky& hide... if intentional, bravo. If not, consider reversing "tremble and hide" to eliminate the rhyme.

    Again, this is a lovely piece, deserving of praise and wonder. <><

      short and sweet, the way i like it! this was beautiful, the way you started with the storm, eventually settling it down to finally bring around the rainbow as an apology for the noise. very sweet and very poignant. i went digging, angela, and i found a gem for my favorites!!

      nicely done. nicely done indeed. i like the decrescendo throughout the whole piece, and the images of the storm in the first few lines are pretty vivid in there succintness. I kind of gave me the image of children hiding underthere beds during a big storm...im not really sure why....

       Ohh my...
    This is up there with flower fairies and moon beams and candyfloss for the sheer sweet simple satisfaction I got from this.
    Rainbows in condolence...
    That is just beautiful.

      Liked the tale (tail-get it?) of your big ole dog trying to hide in a tiny hidey hole. Mine does the same. Golden Retriever...zcared of loud noise. Thanks for the comment about "Rain." Yes, I am more of a storm person.(Retriever's name is Storm ---HONEST INJUN!) What's more fun than listening to the thunder and rumble grumble in a real flash-bang downpour?
    Maybe the rainbow is punishment for enjoying the storm so much?

      heya angela. how i love the ring of that name. aaaa............things that end in a's.

    i think of my beast of a dog trying to find the smallest place to hide. running in a downpour and the shower being the apology:metoday.
    i like the last two lines as others have said. people always ooh and awe at rainbows like they do at apologies, i find. they are so common, yet still so surprising. :)

    i somehow would picture you as a storm lover. maybe we can be both.

      Great poem. Loved the last line. It's quite sweet, really. Aren't those poetry contests funny? They really have very little to do with poems, I believe.

      I thought you brought a great deal of reflection to the table with this write. The imagery was quite effective and the ending help out hope with a twist. Well done!

      YOu do not do yourself justice, this is a good poem. The last two lines were a great touch. Welcome, by the way. You are amongst friends. Ciao.

      Okay, several things puzzle me here. How on Earth do you get so many comments on one piece?! And how did Cyn get away with saying just 'Very, very nice?' I too enjoyed the write but 31 and now 32, I can't quite believe it.
