Thunderstorm

Clashing air masses,
Booming sounds leading to tapping paws,
A pit bull’s nails on hardwood
At two in the morning.

The standard tricks not working,
A blanket for security,
An arm to stop the shaking,
Nothing worked.

Until the technology did more than memes
When YouTubes’s background noise relaxed shaking muscles.
Who knew Tibetan bowl music would have such an effect?

Eventually, the storm moved along,
The bells and bowls kept chiming,
Dog and dad kept snoring, and
The leaves barely clinged to the branches.
