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, Reeellaaaxxx! 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

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
