... Just one time, I would like to run toward: ....

This was written before church today. And now I have the secret - His Name is Jesus! :D

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

The air so still, so heavy, so ---
yellow --- matches the chicken
streak down my spine, closes
'round the throat with hands of

fear.  Not again:  this is my life,
running from storms, both real
and imagined:  just one time, I
would like to run toward:  feet

programmed to turn the other
way, looking for somewhere to
hide.  Never liked terror-filled
skies, full of light and noise ---

always had Mommy and Daddy
to hold me.  Compared to the
monsters on the Plains, those
of youth were nothing:  these

guys are serious:  their mouths
roaring with wind and rain, arms
pitching hail and tornadoes,
reaching out to snag my ankles,

determined to pick me up:  my
parents can no longer save me.
Have to confront the monsters
on my own.  Just don't know how.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (6/21)

Maybe remembering that your parents are watching over and helping protect you would help...

That cloud is super ominous, though. Truth be told, I'd be chicken too... "How oft I would have gathered you like hen to chickens under my wings, but you would not..." (something like that, Karla)--somehow, I think you "would." --Charlie

I've been afraid in my life too. I think the tornadoes in the sky that we have here are a metaphor for your real fears. I've had some of the same issues. To every one a measure of faith is given, speak to it, yell Faith rise up! ;) As always you've woven a terrific piece my Storm Spinner, my friend.

Love, Janet xoxoxo
