Storm

the wind bends trees

leaves ripped and scattered

rain fills culverts

spirals over sewer basins

lightning forks across my eyes

black and white images left

the air cools noticeably

goose flesh arms

comfort from the sticky hot

sky colours darken

away to blackness

sheets of yellowwhite entertain

we wait

i reach for your hand

point out a flashboom

i wish you were here to take it
