Some days were just made for thunder........

Some days are just made for this
you could look at it that way or
maybe its just me
But the thunder excites something
in my very soul

Most days I'm doing okay
and can take life as if the grains of
salt were just that
yet others
ahh the others .......

Like the mornings that I awake from a
punishing dreamworld
only to realize that yes
they're only dreams
But they are also reflections of a life

Or the days when it's as if
I'm only forcing myself
to go through the
motions of smiling.....
greetings .....
meetings

I once got onto a horse and rode
hard into the storm ...I knew just
what was coming the rain
the wind

But the lightning striking in the
trees nearby only
made me more anxious
And we rode on
and we'll ride again

There are times when I feel one with nature's stormy wrath , especially to clear all my selfish misgivings . As if my life were supposed to be made just for me ! But then later, I become humbled by his powers . His grace ! Thank you God for thunder , for rain and yes , even for the blues.

Beautiful poetry from the heart. I too feel there are times I need to be in nature's stormy wrath. Maybe it's a cleansing of the soul. I hit many buttons on this lovely poem.

Voted up and awesome. There are day when the sky becomes dark and almost black, the wind whips up and then the lighting flashes and the thunder crashes and I think it's all so romantic. Your poem expresses this so well. Passing it on.

I was here in my house, feeling like a storm was about to burst from my heart and precipitation had already been detected in my eyeball area. Then I decided to distract my mind by reading some more of your amazing poetry. I just have to thank you, your words calm me.
