21 May: 2 Cellos and a Storm

lightning at the beach, south coast Sussex UK

The Storm

Every time the wind
chatters through the fence,
voices mutter in the roof tiles.
It’s the whim of sky.

Its grip and shine
of sulking rain are scented by
far off dry grass. And then
that moment that vibrates

ones bones, incandescent
lightning, and basso-pitched
thunder as if heaven rolled over.
So dark, so fluid it fills my ears,

and I think, I need a fairytale
to write myself out of this.

  1. I love a good summer storm with thunder, lightning and steady rain. We had one last night except it was more noise and light show than rain (which we need). It feels like the tension just seeps out of me.
    Also, I love the last two lines. Sometimes I feel that way about U.S. news.
