Silent Rains from Distant Storms

The purple clouds of evening gloom
Like horses dressed in feathered plumes
Rush nearer as the tempest forms
Falls Silent Rain from Distant Storms

The twinkling starlight shimmers white
Like fireflies swarming in the night,
We sit and watch as sunrise warms
These silent rains from distant storms

Scirocco wind breathes on our back
The lightning flash, the thunder clap
And still the sound of silence mourns
The silent rain from distant storms
