Three Claps, And a sigh.

The skies grew dark as a roll of clouds moved north, casting blotchy, rippling shadows along the grass as it swayed and danced back and forth, caught in the coming storm's wind. A roll of thunder caught the hills, and boomed down into the valley. and then, the first drop of rain, fell. Followed by another, and another, until all around there was a steady cascade, falling from the sky. The clouds rolled on, the grasses below now boiling in the winds. And the light rain, rose back from the ground, in a sickly wave, for as soon as it fell, the tiny droplets, were consumed by the hungry soil, and spat back out by the heat, into the sky. down and up it came, first as rain and then as fog, until the whole mountainside was muggy, and dank. A great flash of light, followed by a roar, and the second crash of thunder had passed, only to be followed by an even greater sum of light, as a fire sprung from the bluff where the lightning had stung. Through the waving grass it roared, eagerly devouring the dry blades, its flames high in the air one moment, and then gone the next. Wind tossed the burning sea to and fro, in a symphony of chaos and wonder, until, in a way that one would think the sky itself had split open, a final clap of thunder, shook the hills, and the sky, poured. Torrential rains hailed from the sky, and drenched the parching lands below. The once bright flames were doused, and all the heat in the air was dropped. On and on it poured, soaking the land, and turning the cracked, dusty fields into a marsh, while all around the ash from the fire was swept away. Small rivers formed, and carried the surging waters across the land, until all was as it had been once before. Slowly the rain began to dwindle from the sky, until it was nothing more than a mist, and finally gone. And as the clouds rolled by a speck of sun broke through, followed by his brethren, until the sky was blue once again, and the fields of green, shimmered in the sun, as they swayed in the breeze below.

A little bit different than my usual style, but I hope you all enjoyed anyway :)
