thunder roars and kids squeal
this lion of rain shakes her mane
her white fangs snap the wind

  4. RAWR! I am not afraid! Bring it on XD, wonderfully written, the storm is coming, don’t kill my internet please :X

    • LOL! The first line was inspired by hearing a group of little kids outside last night as a storm came, squealing when lightning flashed only to be drowned out by the thunderclap.

  5. AWESOME!! “lion of rain” — too good!
    Perfect description of a thunderstorm…

    And that image is excellent too… black and white give a special touch to the best of the best, in my opinion ofcourse! 🙂
