The Beauty of a Storm

The thunder boomed in the distance,
Dark clouds rolling in,
The rain began to fall from the sky
From under my umbrella
I notice a yellow rose,
It's beauty glistening with water drops
Puddles begin to form as the rain comes down,
People rushing about trying to avoid the storm
I can't help but notice the beauty around me,
Flowers soaking up the water,
A rainbow beginning to peak out from behind the clouds,
It's colors changing from dim
To bright as the rain stops,
The sun starts to shine
As the puddles begin to dry,
The birds start chirping,
Kids begin to play
