Dancing with the thunder

Dancing with the thunder

my dance with thunder and rain enjoying a moment complete wild abandonment.

The thunder boomed the lighting cracked

I sat up in bed

The air was electric

My pulse pounded

My heart sped

Chills danced up and down my arms

Opening the door I stepped outside

The sky's dark

The rain beating down

Then a flash and the world lit up

Everything shown in a monochrome of black and white

It was like a sirens song this storm in the dead of the night

In a trance I stepped out in the yard

Another thunder clap and a sound like a laugh 

I began to dance with the thunder

The rain soaked me

Lighting mocked me

But the thunder rumbled and roared, welcoming a new partner

I dipped and swayed

I smiled with glee

I let myself be free

I threw my life into the wind and trusted the thunder

I rode the lightning tasting the fury of another outdoor drama

The louder the roar the faster I moved, keeping pace with the storm

My face tilted up taking it all in 

The lightning split the dark, showing me the dance floor

I danced till the tempo begin to slow,

Till all I could hear was a far off rumble

Out of breath

I slowed and stopped and bowed to my partner

and thanked the elements for my dance with the thunder...
