safe

midnight

the lighting blasts away the night

and the thunder of the crashing clouds rolls and booms and cracks the sky

rain lashes the fields like ocean waves

so hard it splashes into my bedroom from the balcony

i'm sitting up in bed sleepless

the thrill of a night storm has woken me

and stirred the muse...

beside me in the warm bed

little girl tosses

reaches

rolls into me

and i wrap her soft in daddy's blanket

he'll be home tomorrow, sweetheart

we're safe

storms are for sharing snug and warm places

the mist films my computer screen

and i gently put it away

the swish and swoop of the thrashing heavens

kissing it goodbye
