"Buffalo Storm" by Barry Thomas‘Summer Showers in the African Savanna’ by Nivedita Karthik The Society December 6, 2017 Beauty, Poetry Slowly yet steadily the heat starts to soar as the sun’s first rays glimmer in the east sky. With no breeze to cool down the forest floor the temperature reached an all-new high. Nothing stirred in the dry heat of the day and lions lay panting in the shade of the trees. As leaves turned brown and flowers withered away The only sound was the drone of the bees. Then all of a sudden storm clouds gathered menacing and gloomy and dark and gray. Thunder boomed, lightning forked and rain battered leaving everything in total disarray. Nivedita Karthik is a graduate in Integrated Immunology from the University of Oxford who likes reading books and travelling. She is an accomplished Bharatanatyam dancer and has given many performances. She loves any form of creative writing (especially poems) and writes them whenever she can.
