One is reminded of powerful columns of steam rising from factories. Developing thunderstorms -indicated by towering Cumulus and young Cumulonimbus – are some of nature’s most amazing sights. Towers of condensed water vapor rising into much cooler air display their violence with every turret, bump, and hill – forcing their way violently into the atmosphere above. Soon, these dramatic columns of water vapor will encounter cold and icy conditions, creating ingredients to produce electrical energy and precipitation of liquid and solid form. These elements being heavy and cool – are displayed on earth as rain, wind, hail, and lightning – making up the beauty of the thunderstorm.

A violent upheaval

An army of water, upheavals underway

Dramatic invasions, breaking the boundaries

of atmospheric innocence.

Hard, firm and white, visibly punching

rising faster and harder, the clouds grow into a castle

A castle in the sky – the king is in center court.

A castle of impressive majesty

And atmospheric authority.

Darkening out even the power of the sun itself

The entity responsible for it’s creation

The Thunderstorm roams the Praries

bringing life through rain

And death through destruction

An atmospheric double edged sword.
