Mother Nature is angry today
she’s got something on her mind.
She is pushing the trees back and forth
daring them to break.
The wind is wildly whipping up a frenzy
in the clouds.
The darkness rolled in quickly
on this hot summer day.
The temperature is rapidly dropping
there is an ominous sound in the air.
The threat of storm is imminent
warnings of this and that.
Thunderstorms, tornadoes, certainly floods
are on their way.
I’m sitting outside listening as the silence
has become filled.
There are sirens screaming in the distance
someone has fallen from the bridge.
Visibility has gone from bad to worse
and the rain has started to fall.
Those first few drops bring that smell
of the earth becoming wet.
Soon though, the ground
will begin to overflow.
I am out here in spite of the warnings
to stay indoors, it’s still a serious threat.
I feel like I need to talk to this growing storm
she is saying all the things today that I can’t.
Thunder just came in with a heavy rumble
shaking the silence again with a roaring voice.
Lightning will be the next to come
with a sudden electric pulse.
I want to feel this power
fill the space around me.
I want to walk for miles
soaked completely to the bone.
I want to be absolutely overtaken
by the power of something that cannot be contained.
