Summer Storm; Lausanne

In the mountains

With lake between

Thunderous rumbles

Rolled unseen


The mighty crack

Of lightening close

Lit the tree

Turned oak to toast


Put out the lighting

Plunged all in dark

Including the love struck

Pair laid in the park


In the black-out

Now doused in rain

They lay there still

They’d felt no pain
