Turn Of Events.

A day of no events
just the dawn and the dusk
seemed to pass off seamlessly
when a sudden jolt unheard,
unseen and unexperienced
created a shudder so rude,
nothing internally as one would anticipate
being a deafening thunder with
a blinding lightning followed by a downpour
that fell as a sheet of rain almost impenetrable
a frightening night it was all the same
as the rains lashed out with a noise
rattling over the roof, striking the window panes
flooding the land, inundating the low areas
terrible as such, disastrous and bewildering.
