poem challenge: Car

That Look

You pulled up in your old, green car and gave me that same look you used to give me so many years ago.
The look that kept me up at night
That had me looking over my shoulder
Hiding in the bushes
That look that made the flowers die
And the children cry
That look that made the thunder rumble 
And the lightning strike
As you drove away the sky cleared
The flowers bloomed
The children smiled
As you drove away
