A Storm

The sky booms

as lightning strikes

like God sending a message,

warning the world.  

The light zigzags like                                                     

bark on a tree

killing the darkness,

creating the light.

It wakes me up

from the loneliness inside.

I watch the storm until it is gone.

I feel alive

like the lightning left its light

inside me.
