If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm.  ~ Frank Lane

The thunderstorm came rolling in, and swept across our town.                                            The winds were blowing through the trees; the rain was falling down.

I sat relaxing on the couch till it was time for bed.                                                                        The rain and wind lulled me to sleep as I lay down my head.

Woke up early to go to the gym, swiftly horrified                                                                      During the entire storm my sunroof was opened wide!

  1. I love the structure of your poem and how the reader is stunned by the last line just as surely you were when you saw the results of an open sunroof.

  2. Oh no! The ending came as such a surprise to me–as it no doubt did to you! My husband has a longstanding habit of leaving car windows open before it rains. His old Jeep smelled super moldy and gross from all the times it had gotten rained in!!
