California is getting an unbelievable amount of stormy weather. Snow in the mountains, rain where I am.We just had a heavy thunderstorm undelieveable.I shut down my computer for a couple hours. Watched some of it on my porch;-)


I felt the thrust of mighty power
As soon as  I saw the roiling clouds
I felt as if the vibrating energy
Made my senses sing out loud

The storm no different than a mate
Thundered over me in command
As tongues of lightning  spate
Sucking up all  energy from the land

Winds blew in gale like force
Rains delighted with my soaking
Almost like a wave over a ship at sea
I couldn't believe the velocity

Playing tug o war with a storm was insane
Taking all it had to give,the game I played
So exciting ,I had to stay until it waned
Hoping to match its tempestuous ways

I have never ever seen storms like the one I witnessed in Texas last thats what I call hell on earth !
Agree with Ed below...the calm before and after the storm is truly
awe inspiring
That is an amazing accompanying graphic too Eileen

I love watching storms; they truly are powerfully thought provoking, and they truly display the immense force of Mother Nature. And when they finally pass, I also love watching for that inevitable rainbow behind them.

I think you submerged yourself within the storm and drew from it. That third stanza seems out of place somehow, like part of another poem which premise is a bad experience in your life. Out of place compared to the rest of the poem, but actually only a minor blip so.

You painted the storm to perfection. Your pallette of fresh ideas is as awesome as the storm you depict. You capture nature in all its glory and mischievousness.

The American weather is exciting.. Never had seen thunder and lightning simultaneously, thought that was a movie gimmick...
But nope, plus seeing lightning bounce of the earth, was awesome and humbling..
Yuppers you've captured the thrill of nature....

Sounds like a fun game.

I used to enjoy those rainstorms in California; they were rare and often a relief. Here in the Midwest they can often be deadly. I'm with Dawn: Glad you got to play and enjoy!

Carmen :-)

sounds like a rough one, but beautiful and magnificent, too. it just occurred to me, reading this, that some of my unhappiness with winter in GA is the absence of true thunderstorms (or at least many with more than cold, steady rain)... glad you got to play a little or be played :)
