Nature's fury

The house bowed under the heavy weight of darkness. It was as though an inky blackness had shrouded it.

No stars or moon shone to give a glimmer of light.

She lay in her bed, thoughts flitting into her brain like a myriad of butterfly wings as she teetered on the dark abyss of sleep.

She slept, unmoving, caught in a web of dreams.

Her eyes flew open, her brain still befuddled by sleep. She lay, her heart pounding. What had woken her from such a delicious sleep?

An electric blue flash ripped apart the dark sky, followed by the distant rumble of thunder. She lay, listening as the storm grew closer and closer.

The sky was a tumult of sound and light, thunder following lightening in a never ending game of cat and mouse.

She stumbled to the window and threw back the curtains.

She stood and watched in awe as nature unleashed it's fury before her.
