Wayne's Poems - 11. Thunder

Your light appears in my dim world,
bright lit, silent and stark.
You streak across my sky, my love,
you burn away the dark.

As you draw near the power rolls,
in your eyes a wonder.
I had forgotten with each strike,
growls the voice of thunder.

Wayne, this is awesome. Love the way you use the storm as a metaphor. 

Thanks, Parker.  That's really how love feels to me.  There's this wonderment in the strength of it, and then a little bit of fear too.  Anything that strong... if there's not fear of the power that person has over you, then there's probably a willful lack of awareness too.  At least, that's how it works for me.

This is a terrific poem...thanks Wayne. 

Thanks, Mike.  It's a short one.  I may work a bit more on that first stanza... syllables are all right, but it doesn't flow well.  The second one though, yeah.  I feel like I nailed that one.  Finishing strong is better than not.
