Who are you to come disturbing the peace on winters night.
Don’t go coming around here stomping your feet and shouting loud at the trees.
Who are you to start shaking the floors and breaking the walls.
Then you cry your tears of rage when your destruction is not enough.
Hail stones fall from your icy heart,
upon us who have heard your anger and felt your wrath before.
We are still here oh mighty storm.
You have done your best but we have survived.
We know you will return with a fury, in disguise with an alias;
a new and different name.
But it’s too late you see.
We shall rise again and conquer thee.
We see through the cloak you wear,
and when the smoke has cleared,
we’ll still be here.
Run away with your tail between your legs,
grumbling as you go.
We laugh. HA!
After a hot day, the storm rolled in.
This afternoon I decided to go and sit in the bush to read my text for uni tomorrow. Away from distractions and chores that encourage me to procrastinate at home.
All was going well till I could hear the wind whipping up through the trees. I looked up to see some very low cloud swirling around in the sky. It was amazing to see how low the clouds were…or was it that i was at a higher point than i normally am when storm clouds are brewing.
Within minutes the low clouds blew overhead making way for rain filled higher clouds. I decided to close my book and quickly walk home before i got soaked.
Thought you would enjoy these photos i took of the storm clouds brewing.
Oh, the saying is true…There is calm before the storm. Everything was very still before the wind started.
I took this photo years ago at Nord’s wharf near Newcastle in NSW Australia. Best weather shot I have taken so far I think.
