Summer Storm – A Rondelet

Don’t rush for cover
for there is inspiration to be found.
Don’t rush for cover
when a rumbling summer storm hovers.
Let your senses be filled with wild wind sounds,
skin tingling wet from the rain falling down,
Don’t rush for cover!

A Rondelet for Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge this week. The prompt is Summer Storm. The Rondelet is a French form consisting of a single septet with two rhymes and one refrain:AbAabbA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats. The refrain is written in tetra-syllabic or dimeter and the other lines are twice as long – octasyllabic or tetrameter.
