I love rain and exciting weather. Driving to spend time at our off-grid place this afternoon, this thunderhead greeted me and inspired this poem. Enjoy the poem and rain!


a bulky, swelling cloud bank
with the promise of excitement.

taking over the horizon
inhaling the day’s light
until its heavy boots
hit the ground in thuds
kicking rolling boulders

releasing pend up wet
like a blow hole from above

a beast with an imposing forehead
and smoky eyes
glazed with glee or worry
it is hard to tell
in a visage so electric
rubbing its furry tail
against the balloon of sky.

bringing down the ceiling,
so we can see the top of the world
and it is grand,
a laughing, fleeting grand thing.
