Dark and Stormy Night

Jenny Matlock


It was a dark and stormy night
Caressing my mood as
Mother Nature sings my song
Fingers of wind stroke chords
Rhythm of thunder matches rage
I scream in time
Lightening strikes in beat
Face uplifted, in harmony with rain
Only a sotto voice remains

    You brilliantly removed the cliche and inserted tender emotion in its place.
