SHELTER OF THE STORM

 

 

Drawn to a summer storm
built out of blue clouds
at dusk, I am swept up

into the gusts before
the dark sky cracks
with jagged light

all around touching down—
distant rumbles roaring
closer by as the earth

shakes. I am alive within
it and myself, perhaps
afraid, but exhilarated

to have escaped
the latest episode
to miss the evening news.

    I; would rather watch and feel a lightning storm any time than watch the evening news!!! Darn, we didn’t get any, only clouds.
