Flash Friday 55 (Rain)

A bang and a flash of light
a surge of heat felt throughout
the night.

Then is starts
droplets big at first
warm, slow steady.

Faster it comes down
in a steady stream
the wind picks up
the crackling of the
skies grow more fierce

Oh how I love a good
rain storm.


  1. I enjoy rain storms too, and like the way you create a feel for the atmosphere through your 55!

  2. Well you had better make your way over to Yorkshire here in UK - yep! Tis grim here!

    My 55 is up too.

  3. great post.. gave me a chill.. I hate storms

  4. way to start it with a bang...i like that...and kinda glad my storm has come to an end...too many days ina row...nice 55.

  5. me as well - rain storms are fantastic and inspire most poets...smiles...stormy 55!

  6. I remember a summmer thunderstorm that rolled in just before sundown. I was sitting on the porch of a cabin in the woods. The wind blew mightily and the rain poured down. Thunder clapped deafeningly as the intermittent flashes of lightning strobe-lit the surrounding forest in nightmarish on/off flickering of sudden blinding white followed by instant blackness. I was a bit scary at times, but thrilling.

  7. You've done a great job describing a storm. I really like a good storm with all the drama too.

  8. I close my eyes are feel as if I am there. I share your love of the rain. Guess that is why I live in the Pac NW. Great 55.

    My 55 is HERE .

  9. Love storms. Good to see you back with the 55 gang.

  10. To be honest with you, I love storms! I love rainstorms, as long as they don't tamper with the TV reception or as long as I don't get too wet. Wanna see my 55er? It's at

  11. Can't beat good storm! Excellent descriptive piece.

  12. Nice and appreciable impressive words.
