Songs of Thunder

Soft sprinkling in the iridescence 
tickles with the caressing of the breeze
Sensations alluring
flashing light in the dark of day
an undetermined distance away…

Breath of the sky … floating high 
imperceptibly becoming more ominous 
with subtle flickers and distant rumbling 
intensifying into seduction …

And tension gathers strength 
and every flash ignites in passion
Consciousness dims and lights begin to fade
as this ominous storm begins to unfurl

Sensations strong... 
playing with every sense, entwining thoughts
Unrestrained surrender 
succumbing obligingly, uninhibited 
reverberating among the waves

Embracing the melody in songs of thunder
Becoming undone as furies exhale deeply
in this … provocative overture ...

    Perfect journey of sensual metaphor tied with all the images of song, percussion and release--great images and sensations!

    a vivid and passionate depiction which can be read either way, as an actual thunderstorm...or metaphor for something else...lol cleverly penned, anyway
