Crashing storm

Nature is ruthless
Along with serene
When it acts
By its whim
It requires no belief
You'll know when it has begun
The ground stands firm
The earth never moves
Solidly beneath my feet
Stands firm when the rain comes
But with the thunder crashing
The lightning ahead warns
The storm moves swiftly
The sky falls collapsing
The wave of rain and warm
Electric is the air
Lightning bolts fall
Pounding down
In a rhythm
Without a master hand
Drumming the tribal sound
