Riddle Poem

Now here’s a poetry type I’d like to use in my current novel the RIDDLE.

I boom, crash and smash
and love to be recorded for
bbc sound effects for movies.

I can be ominous or
welcomed when there is drought
although my partner when she strikes
can cause fires.
Although she is tolerated more than me
for her dangerous beauty.

I am the sign of the storm
that you might fear as a child
as I give you nightmares
throughout the night.

I show you that sound travels
slower than light.

I send astrophobes under
the covers or tables
as they can never make peace
with me.

I remind you of stories
of halloween.

I am?
