Storm Child

“As the Rains Begin to Fall” – BGC, 18 June 2015

under

darkening skies

and the

gentle patter

of the

rain

i sit

in blissful

silence,

grateful for

the grace

of cooler

breezes;

silvery drops

falling to

earth…

and i

feel giddy

and blithe

wishing to

traipse

and dance

and frolic

sans inhibitions

like the

giddy

rain-mad

girl

i used

to be:

breathing,

drinking

deeply

of life

of love,

caught up

in a

carefree

exhilarating

elemental

magic

all my

own –

eyes bright

lips kissed

by dew

by mist

eldritch energy

surging

through weary

limbs

rejuvenated

reborn

in the

music

of thunder

brilliance

of lightning

child of

the storm

rejoicing.
