Facing the storm

What is it that approaches

From stage left?

Drama

Can it be those heavy brocades

Weaved from storm clouds?

Wow

Or the rain coming down

In bars of coloured clouds?

Stormy

Simson did his best to pose in the storm —

But I think he was secretly relieved when I took him and my camera home.
