TEMPEST( mixed meter for Wes' shop)

All thunder and heavy rain
mere minutes in the past
sun now shining,'twas in vain
fierce storms seldom last

Dear Scribbler,

This is purely delightful!!! And so true. It put me in mind of a summer storm that arises quickly, does it's damage and dissipates just as fast as it came.

how one can apply images of weather as metaphor to one's own experiences, so easily yet so subtlely.
This one's very good, I would change not a thing.
