Rolling in like an ocean wave ~ thick, gray, alive
…..a misty shroud of oppressive heat and wind.
Rolling in like a steam train ~ loud, fast, strong
…..a cold steel force unstoppable with no end.
Rolling in like a forest fire ~ ablaze with sparks
…..a glassy bolt of fear as lightning to earth send.
Rolling in like fog ~ thundering sparking storm
…..a flashing cold proof of natures power to rend.
