Thunderous rain

Bouncing on pavements

Making rivers flow

Gathering intensity

Swirling and dragging

Life washed away


The sky lowered

Confining the earth

Heavy blanket of grey

Pressing down

Constricting life

Smothering breath


Water streams down

Clouding perception

Vision blurred

Obscuring the world

Horizon shortens

Dissolved in mist


Pervasive aura of fog

Surrounding our senses

Trapping our energy

Bewildering mind

And body

Immobile, dormant
