The Battle Outside My Window

A mighty battle raged outside my window
I was witness to the awesome show
Between the clouds, wind, rain, and sun
The combatants fought on unwilling to run
Clouds and wind were fickle allies
In the ever-changing skies
First fought off the sun, then helped the rain
Then changed sides yet again
Then from the raging gray and blue
A rainbow declared a truce
Everyone settled down
To prepare for another round
Without a doubt they all knew knew
The peace would end too soon.
–Russ Towne
