Electric Skies ..........


An electric scent of ozone fills the air
a storm brewing......a hard rain begins
The lightning struck in the trees to my left
the flames jump from the limbs

And just then everything lit up
I felt the charge burning my very soul
My very essence consumed from within
some power of altered control

When man feels anger ....anxt....and
a seething inner storm
Better off to appease the thunder and
lightning ....don't challenge the norm

Now though ....the storm of the darkest night
has past .... we may make it through yet
the rainbow's light always set's me free
I do love a storm though you can bet

How wonderful. I just love a good storm. Growing up and living in the desert the storm is always good news for life. And there is nothing like the peace after having weathered through.

My daughter-in-laws dad has been giving us updates on the rainfall in Wichita Falls, Texas. They have been drenched probably 10 inches the last week. Everyone is delighted to have the drought broken at last. The lakes are filling and there is some flooding. Not a complaint to be had. When the storms of life are brewing we complain and get angry. The perspective we take on storms depends on whether you are coming from a drought or regular rainfall year. I think your poem clearly show this.
