CANYON STORM

Kathleen McNamara


Boiling black clouds stalk the canyon rim
like a feline huntress ready to pounce on her prey
talons of lightning unsheathed
tearing jagged streaks across the sky
fierce growls of thunder echo off the mountain walls
cactus and scrub pines quiver in the howling winds
grateful for the safety of an old abandoned cabin
I hear the staccato echoes of rain and hail on the roof
the last outburst of Nature’s breathtakingly beautiful fury
