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.
