Storms Like These
rain – the kind of rain
you’re sure will bring down the sky
wind – the kind of wind
you’re sure will bring down all around you
thunder – the kind of thunder
you’re sure will crumble the walls
lightning – the kind of lightning
you’re sure will puncture the ceiling
while others choose to cower, I revel
storms like these remind me I’m alive,
display a power over which we have no control,
clear out the cobwebs of a humid day,
and can reshape the landscape
storm – the kind of storm
you’re sure will end it all
but what a show and what a feeling!

Like the poem. Hate the storms.
Thank you, Lilly! 🙂 Those storms can be the best part of a bad, humid, oppressive summer day but I’ve known many who simply hate a storm to roll through.
Lovely lines John. Thanks for sharing. I believe we should have that power to speak out too.
