Missouri Storm

A sweltering hot summer’s day

Clouds gather like a funeral procession

And let down their tears

Earth is cleansed as pelting sheets of drops flood empty streets

Empty but for one bare-footed stranger

Soaked to the bone

Dancing with delight in the drenching downpour

The warm, wet cement is her stage

Bright flashes of lightening her spot-light

Rushing wind and drum-like thunder her music
