Summoning Thunder

Nothing cracks like Texas thunder

Summoning Thunder

Summoning Thunder


Nothing cracks like Texas thunder

ricocheting through the night.


We rouse ourselves from gossamer dreams.

Foggy in our mirrored eyes, we slip shades open


and gaze unto the velvet mist of early morning,

a marbled sky of violet wonder.


A heartbeat as familiar as our own,

we sink back to feathered silence.
