My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

June 22, 2010 “STORM”

June 22, 2010


I felt the wind on my face
I heard the clamor of the leaves
In the trees with their undersides turned up
To the darkening sky
To the swirling, roiling, boiling sky

I watched the clouds gathering
I watched them cover up the sun
Until the day was as dark as the night
With the thickening clouds
With clambering, verging, merging clouds

I saw the bright lightning flash
I cringed at the electric crack
The jagged blue-white finger scorched the ground
Purple slashed ‘cross my eyes
Across my blinding, searing, tearing eyes

I felt the thunder explode
I heard its wrath affront the air
The unleashed anger of forgotten gods
Cursing with grotesque sound
With cacophonous, booming, dooming sound

I felt the rain’s silent splash
I saw its march across the field
Cascading torrents of heaven born orbs
Soaking the thirsting ground
Healing the parching, drying, dying ground
