 'A maelstrom
of ferocious little
fists and punches...'

Hailstones always elicit a simultaneous arghh/awed reaction from me. Perfectly described here by Kay Ryan.

Hailstorm - Kay Ryan

Like a storm
of hornets, the
little white planets
layer and relayer
as they whip around
in their high orbits,
getting more and
more dense before
they crash against
our crust. A maelstrom
of ferocious little
fists and punches,
so hard to believe
once it’s past.
