A Raging Storm
Author: Pondering Red


a single drop of rain
slides through the sad sky-
a reflection
in the mirrored surface
of my childhood lake.
thousands of droplets
join forces
and drill insanely
through the water-
form circles
and more circles that swirl and wave.
a raging storm-
sky casts a faded black shadow.
i sit near the large window,
not blinking.
flashes of light
reflected in my eyes.
yellow blue lightning streaks
shoot through the air-
so near.
i run to the lake-
feel the warmth-
drenched and wild,
hair dripping.
i am soothed.
twirling and spinning,
faster than i can inhale the madness-
in a trance.
danger beckons.
birch trees glow a flourescent white,
a contrast
to the deep purple tinged evergreens
near the horizon curve.
the waves now larger than the lake.
sheets of rain cover me
our hands begin to clasp together.
the forest cries.
