No Idle Threats

Sometimes storm clouds gather
Glower
And threaten rain
Then give way to clear skies
Like a seemingly ferocious dog exposed as having all bark but no bite

Not so these storm clouds which have possessed the skies here in recent weeks
They glowered and threatened and delivered
Delivered rain showers in sheets

Accompanied by lightning and thunder
Saturating the earth to overflow
Raising water levels in rivers and their kin

Sometimes storm clouds gather
Glower
And threaten rain
Then give way to clear skies
Not so these storm clouds
No idle threats this time
