Yellow Skies

Cloudy skies
turning yellowish
as the thunderstorm
neared,
I half expected
or, did I fear
a distant flash
a small rumble, closer
coming,
my nighttime views
orange became,
the greens and yellows
harboring a brownish
twinge,
the leaves
stopped in their tracks
a sudden hush
as if, as if
I pulled my coat
tighter around
my neck,
sensing an electric
feeling
present,
Yellow skies, warning
a change to come
not necessarily
for the better

but a change
nonetheless….
