Blue Storm

We walk up the path together hand in hand
We come to a verdant pasture
surrounded by firs and pines
The smells are so divine
We spread a blanket for our picnic lunch

After we eat we lie together and watch the sky
The clouds drifting by in formation of imaginings
I tell you a story of the open range and wild ponies
You laugh and smile, You say this is a tall tale
I smile and say, Iíll brew you a blue storm

We are caressed by a soft breeze
off in the distant horizon a thunder head forms
We hear the thunder rumble and see lightning flash
Suddenly the wind picks up and before you know it
it is upon us so we seek shelter in a shed on the hill

The rain pours down into the gullies and ravines
We are startled by the thunder crashing
The lightning claps and enlightens the dark storm
It leaves us as suddenly as it came
I say, told you Iíd brew a blue storm

A rainbow appears on the horizon as the sun slips in
The spectrum of color blends in the landscape around us
Iíll tell you about the pot of gold at rainbows end
but only leprechauns can capture it
I laugh, I could tell you a tall tale about the little people

We walk back up the path towards my pickup truck
We stop and look back with our arms around each other
We kiss and I know Iím falling in love with her
You smile at me and say I had such a wonderful day
She whispers in my ear, oh you do brew a blue storm

... Hang on... my mind's bending with the her/she usage in the final stanza... my brain is reading it as one and the same with "you"?! Or am I one sandwich short of your picnic?! I'm afraid, me bein me, my mind was on those wild and free fillies so was rather leaping ahead and making some hay-rollin assumptions about the need to retreat to the shed in the rain... nothing like the sound of a good downpour outside: music to combine by! Damn... just goes to show how into this beautiful scenario I was... all the Dale ingredients in place: the spread blanket and horses - just the fire missing in this one. But - who am I kiddin?? Passion is smoulderin here, even if it ain't yet on fire! Smokin as ever! Love it in whatever shade! LOL K xx

And what a brew it is! A lovely day, romantic and tender but that "blue storm" lurks on the horizon. The lightning and thunder(rumblings of conflict and pain?)come on suddenly with frightening affect and just as quickly disappear as the "sun slips in" (lovers reconciled?)and a "spectrum of color blends in the landscape" (acceptance of each other's failings and circumstance?). There is no "pot o' gold" for these lovers who embrace while looking back, cognizant of the past but living in the present. I'm starting to sound like the "Prof" arn't I, lol! The imagery touches all the senses. The deepest feelings are expressed through metaphor and this write is rife with them. But like I've said before, go ahead and tell me I'm full of "hooey". I can take it! As usual you take us to a place and hold us there 'till the end. Another fine write, Dale...Lin
