It’s been raining a lot in Texas recently. Some terrible floods, and lost homes and lives, sadly. Where I live hasn’t been hit so hard, but we’ve still gotten a lot of rain!

Raincloud

The storm clears her throat

taps fingers on my roof

bored and hovering over the city

trapped by jostling air current siblings

who shove

and push

jabbing elbows into her cloudy midsection

She grumbles

flashing a glare bright against the sky

then finally breaks free

leaving behind broken branches

flooded streets

and the crisp bright smell of rain

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
