A wet day
In the High Street, shoppers glare at the sky,
And turn up their collars.
It’s just a shower.
Umbrellas open like flowers, thirsty for water.
It’s getting heavier.
It’s a real cloudburst!
The clouds darken and begin to rip open,
Showering its icy residue down to chilly people
Nothing is spared from its wrath
And dogs sit whimpering silently
The baby awakes from his heavenly dream
Sunlight is out of sight
As the sky begins to play its drums
Rhythm, tune, beats.
The flashing lights join in soon after
Synchronized wind screen wipers,
Echo down the deserted street.
Fog blinds all sight,
The man on the road collects water
For his dinner later tonight,
Gutters are overflowing,
The traffic comes to a halt
The tear drops run down the window
I don’t think it will ever stop
BOOM, CRASH, ROAR
Saffiyah Salim and Khalish Nisa, Garden International School, K.L. Malaysia
BOOM, CRASH, ROAR.
The sea swishes to the sound of the orchestra,
The night sky thunders aggressively as the rain patters down the street,
PITAPATA, PITAPATA, PITAPATA!
The endless rain...
The ginormous dark menacing cloud
Big and bold, strong and stable
The lightning, so loud, so fresh
Growling at the world,
The sun hiding from its wrath
The rain gets heavier like bullets crashing against the floor
BOOM, BOOM, POW!
Hailstones beating against the earth,
The feeling is overpowering,
This rain is endless!
Oliver Lawrence & Pelumi Bamidele, Bacon's College
Next day thunder comes for an early visit to my house
So much light
So much sound
I came out blind
I came out nearly deaf
Now I live my days listening to the faint sound of the rain.
I want rain to stop
As in the tradition of Japan
I Make paper dolls to stop the pain in my brain.
When I make the dolls suddenly the rain stops
And the strain in my brain goes away.
Felipe Servulo da Cuhna Almeida and Shota Yamasaki, Inernational Commuity School, London
The clouds darken and churn away in the night sky
Florescent light dance across the night
like ballet performers upon a stage
Thunder booms lightening crash the world goes dark in a flash
Rain falls down on my window
Dreadful English weather again
Pita patta pita patta,
I run out to be buffeted by the wind as it whistles past my hair horrendous
Rain it keeps pouring down from the heavens item to item
Drip drip drip
I start awake
The whole house shakes
My cat shrieks
BOOM CRASH PITA PATTA
Ryan Barnes & Liberty Rhodes Great Yarmouth V.A High School
