God Thunder rolls his black clouds by,
and fearsome the Ninja-like slash of lightning 
brings the rain, that which we forties' schoolgirls 
caught in buckets to shampoo our hair, 
then--  a vinegar rinse.  Such purity these 
vanished days of natural grace that dare not 
erase a woeful world we never thought to live 
in, not even the rain can wash away.

And, now the rain comes, its music, its 
perfumed aroma, its entry when leaves have 
stopped their movements, have climaxed, sit quiet 
now in respectful release, even while lightning 
still splits the sky, and the great God Thunder 
sends me to my knees before his wrath, 
benign though it may be, anytime it brings 
the poem, it is the best day ever.

    :)For sure! And perhaps that is what life is really about: not to change the world, but explore self through poetry--no greater power short of God's own hand.

    I truly agree with the last lines...this was very peaceful and soothing to read.
