Rebirthing Storm

Rebirthing Storm
Aug. 29, 2016

Across those dark clouds
jagged zippering lightening

One, one thousand
Two, one thousand
Three one Boooooming
Rumbling bowling ball thunder.

Phew! So close!
Open the window.
Smell — smell the rain.
Earth will live again!

  1. No doubt our earth and sky are alive and well.  Maybe not so much well, as active with a strong heartbeat.  Reminds me of the scruffy blonde political firestarter who struts and frets for the camera, then goes tepid for a time, only to reappear with more bluster.  Attention getter?  I guess!
