Waiting for thunder

They forecast thunder:
Looking above
Marbled sky ever changing
Sweeping like the dementors
Of Harry Potter fame.
A stirring overhead,
Silent and heavy;
A world in waiting
Subtle changes
Building cloud then dissipating
Heavy sporadic drops of rain
From no apparent source.
Enough to release the intoxicating smell of spores released from the earth.
The orange sky against intense grey- layers of smoke grey
Bubbling clouds with cauliflower
A Spielberg sky
Forces of nature
Strength building
Into the night.
We’re still waiting
They forecast thunder.
