Summer Storm

A Lightning bolt striking the Empire State Building
During the raging storm
lightning flashed above the city.
I marveled at its power and beauty.

Tonight, I will walk the street again.
Each time, I find a new path.
At night, the city is full of mystery.

Today, the weather feels wondrous.
Walking is its own reward.
I notice all of the life around me.

That storm was one of many.
They washed the city clean.
Now the storms have left.
Now the mystery is gone as well.
