Examples
The Storm

Flash, Rumble
Rain
Awesome thunder
Wind
The wind will plunder
As did the pirates from on yonder
Raid, fall
Damn! My ship is sinking
The water stinging
Quivering
The storm moves onward
I'm tired, I'm cold, I sink, I die.


Mike Rollins

The Rain

I say old
man ,
listen to that
wind.
Walking is no fun
on a night when horizontal rains
transpire.
Scurry to the back yard
hurry quick then lie
by the fire.
