Thunder and Lightning



As clouds gather in the distance

I anticipate the coming storm

looking forward to the mother nature’s fireworks

the rumbling and grumbling of the Gods

their bowling in the sky that was explained to me as a child

I shiver with anticipation

in awe at the raw power

enjoying the majesty of the light and shadow

My eyes blink then stare into space

looking for more brilliance

I jump and cringe from the sheer cacophony of chaos

I time the difference between the light and sound

knowing the distance between

multiplied by X

is how far away the storm is

loving the discord

snuggling in my blanket

feeling comforted

yet excited

Safe in my home

when the storm passes too soon……..

I am bereft of succor.

Awash in loneliness.
