I am in the mood for a good storm

I am in the mood for a good storm.

The kind that forces you to catch your breath

and quicken your pulse a little bit.

Let the clouds gather

the thunder roll

the lightning strike (but not too close)

the hail beat down.

We need the life sustaining moisture

so I will not mind if my sun disappears

just for the afternoon.

I will shout into the wind

I am still here

I am still standing

and I will shake my fist at the storm

until it becomes dark

then I will go home

and snuggle under a blanket

and turn up the volume on the tv

to drown out the wind.

Yeah, I’m in the mood for a good storm.
