I feel the thunder...
it reverberates through the sky
the vibrations rumble up from the ground
through my shaking body.

I smell the rain...
traveling along the wind
the smell of soil and earth
tantalizing my nostrils.

I hear the rustling leaves...
as gusts play through branches
motions like passionate lovers
hastily disrobing in eagerness.

I see the lightning...
streaking across sky
momentary silhouette of motion
before darkness closes again.

I taste the wild excitement...
the tangy thrill
oh, sweet anticipation
ambrosial upon the tongue.

I feel the thunder...
as the rain claims me
the winds howl my name
as I ride the storm.

I am interested in and fascinated by so many things in the world around me. I am a dreamer and a lover. I endure great pain and sadness. I am bi-polar. I have learned to embrace the many facets of who I am. I chose to view my illness as just another part of what makes me unique. I write as a form of self-expression and art. I share in the hopes that others can identify with my writing and know they are not alone.
