Evening Storm – Pantoum

subtle drops on my face
stillness at the end of the street
nature will fill that space
with windy-wet-passing velocity

stillness at the end of the street
strobe-like sizzle life-force
with windy-wet-passing velocity
she has long since set her course

strobe-like sizzle life-force
rolling claps of thunder
she has long since set her course
a storm-spell I am under

rolling claps of thunder
peppered throughout the sky
this storm spell I am under
shakes and satisfies

peppered throughout the sky
lights flash as echoes follow
shakes and satisfies
fills me, leaves me hollow

lights flash as echoes follow
the smell of wet slate
fills me, leaves me hollow
thirsty earth, sky irate

the smell of wet slate
rumble roar, plink plink
thirsty earth, sky irate
ubiquitous nature sings, sings

rumble roar, plink plink
chasing itself out to sea
ubiquitous nature sings, sings
parting with gentle ferocity

chasing itself out to sea
cats cower and puppies cry
parting with gentle ferocity
evening storm bids goodbye

cats cower and puppies cry
nature will fill that space
evening storm bids goodbye
subtle drops on my face
