Dusky Tempest

"[F]ar out at sea a black storm cloud descends upon the waves, like a stream of pitch poured down from the sky; it is so crammed with darkness, and draws with it a dusky tempest so pregnant with thunderbolts and squalls, and is itself especially so charged with fire and wind, that even on shore people shudder and seek shelter." (Lucretius, De Rerum Natura, Book VI 256-261)
