Thunderstruck Sunshine

The clouds shook
A thick, black, very wet blanket out
In the Southeastern quadrant 
Of the New Mexico firmament,
Complete with lightning
And growling, crackling,
Massive basso-profundo sound effects,
Inviting the sun to rest,
Take a load off, 

Abrasively radiant,
Helios glared a brilliant, heated, passionate,
Steamy smile
Into the arid monsoon skies

And refused Storm’s invitation
To lie down and go to bed

    How charming and expressive i Powerful images: I can visualize the whole scene very well. And the very wit in the last verse...O, Reverend !:)

    Love this work. I commented on another poem. I meant that the place described sounded too cold for me to want to go there. Sara
