Volatility

Volatility

Gently floating fluffy clouds
Frothy as air, dancing along the wind
Long gone 
A sky thick with blanket of marzipan clouds
Suffocating, sucking oxygen from the atmosphere
Thunderous claps break the heavy silence
Seconds before an electrical charge shoots daggers
Across the darkening expanse
Penetrating the ground avoiding the electrodes
and scorching the earth with its volatility

    I love the phrase Marzipan clouds, a perfect description. I think that would make a great title for a song or an album! 🙂
