Patient Storm

Thunder shakes bitter rain from distant clouds,
while, as if in pain, they roil across the heavens.

Lightening licks the jagged mountain rim,
leaving behind a burning kiss, that scars.

All the while, wind cries out,
releasing anger to send debris flying.

And here I stand, watching it all,
patiently waiting to feel that first drop.

    An excellent write, Paula! I feel like I've spent too much time waiting for a storm, myself. Now I'm trying to embrace each one without fear. Hugs to you, Rhonda

    I like the emotions you ascribe to the elements: thunder in pain and the wind crying in anger. Good poetry, Paula. Well done on this piece. :)
