Thunder Rolls

The sky exploded into a roar

and my cardboard wall apartment shook.

The lights flickered

as Mother Nature slammed her hands

against the clouds.

Thunder clamored overhead

and my body rattled into the ground.

She quaked the heavens

until snow ran down her arms

to cover the roads.

The children cheered for each piece

of freedom that landed on the ground,

while the parents groaned inwardly.

When the thunder rolled over my apartment,

it shuddered the electricity

until the internet disconnected 

and reset me back to books and candlelight.

Time reset with each

crash and boom from above.
