Autumn Winds

Rookie - 0 Points (July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

A Storm Is Gathering


The calm before the break
A building electricity in the air

The howling wind is restless
Like a predator pacing a cage

Barely contained
It waits

Biding its time before
It finally strikes

The clouds are
Gathering 'round

Encircling with
An iron grip

The smell of rain
Permeates everything

A storm is gathering
