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
