Hot Summer Night

$0.00Price
  • Sitting

    in the dark heat

    of a humid summer night.

    Listening to the night sounds.

     

    Thinking

    about life and people.

    Things I do not understand.

    Seeking clues, insight, understanding.

     

    Watching

    silent lightening.

    At first over the horizon,

    now nearly upon me, silent no longer.

     

    Feeling

    the sticky heat

    becoming cooler and drier.

    A welcome, yet frightening, change.

    Uncertain

    because change

    can come at a high price.

    The storm, much closer now, threatens.

     

    Stars

    still visible

    above the soaring clouds

    Provide a calming cosmic perspective.

     

    Then

    tendrils of light

    spiral about in and out of the clouds.

    Illuminating earth and sky in otherworldly light.

    All

    a prelude

    to the main event.

    A searing bolt connects the earth and sky

    BAM!

    A lingering flash.

    An earsplitting blast.

    The earth has been changed by the heavens.

    I

    have learned

    I am but a small piece

    of all that was, is, and will be.

     

    As

    I watch

    God paint the sky

    On “A Hot Summer Night”.
