Playing with WORDS

from clipart.com
Trying to develop some word skills to improve my poetry. Working on personification. Make a list of verbs, nouns and adjectives then combine them. Try it, it's fun. 

Verbs-slinks, gathers, claims, shouts, desires, announces, Nouns-sun, clouds, rain, thunder, hail, trees Adjectives-thristy, quiet, reflective, outspoken, silent, boisterous

SUMMER SPEAKS

Silent clouds slink quietly
        across the darkened sky.
Thunder announces its arrival
        with outspoken shouts.
Reflective rain gathers courage
        to make its appearance.
Thristy trees anxiously desire
        another storm's onslaught.
Monsoon's hail arrives boisterously
        claiming our attention.

Now you try it and leave your poem or prose in a comment....
