lightning-crash

Wheel goes on vacation and blogs about it

Today was a nice day- the sort where we spent the whole day on the beach and didn’t have to drive anywhere.

We did the math and determined that we walked nearly 20 miles up and down the beach today, and saw all sorts of wildlife.  We saw birds, and jellyfish, and amateur photographers, and fish:

(that is none of those things- it’s a barnacle-covered coconut)

As we were walking this evening, we could hear the thunder coming in from the north.  We could see the clouds moving in, the oncoming storm.

It was, honestly, beautiful.  Then we sat watching the storm roll in over us, lightning crashing around us, dramatic and lovely.

The family came in tonight as well, but I’m trying hard not to stress about it.

Live- Lightning Crashes

from Throwing Copper (1994)

follow for more 90s music

Rain (original poem)

So much of life today is spite

And war and lies and pain

But if I had one wish tonight

I’d kiss you in the rain

All I need is a summer storm

To make my wish come true

You’d hold me and I’d still feel warm

As cold rain soaked us through

Envelop me in thunder’s grasp

As lightning lips crash down

I want to lose my breath and gasp

Your name before I drown

I need to feel connection, or

Feel anything at all

You make me feel like there is more

Like I’m about to fall

But falling isn’t fatal, no

It’s just misunderstood

And if you don’t mind my saying so

You make falling look good.

I sit up on my roof and stare

At dull suburban skies

Faint drums of thunder fill the air

And then I realize

There is arising in my chest

A heartbeat hurricane

My pulse indicates some distress

Not easy to explain

The dripping drops and cool night breeze

Don’t free me from my mind

Torrent, lightning energies

Or something of that kind

Have torn me open, inside out

I fall and then I fly

You free my soul to scream and shout

Into the roiling sky

“I love you!” to the world I sing

I have no need to hide

Forever is a tiny thing

With you there by my side

The universe would be set right

I’d never hurt again

If I could have my wish tonight

And kiss you in the rain.

“I wonder when the storm will get here”

says my dad

three seconds before lightning crashes and this huge ass downpour drops on top of us

Rise From the Ashes

“Five, Four, Three, Two, One This is New Years Day- so rise from the ashes Faith will find a way- like lightning crashes We’ll keep marching on and on and on… It’s New Years Day, so rise from the ashes”

Chapter Fifteen

I watched as her tiny form scampered out of the room. She wasn’t even through the door before I was following after her. My heart pounded against him chest as I called her name. She didn’t turn back…
