Early Eve Thunderstorm

Danger. Risk,
in these flashes of
light.
Bellows of thunder.

Feel the tiny pelting
of water drops.
The bark, so far,
is bigger than the bite.

Shouldn't I be inside,
seeking refuge,
a safety?

But I would miss
the breeze,
the kind you know
can only be that
of the mighty storm.

Sticky, unpredictable,
wind blows as it wishes.
Evidence of something
unstoppable,
just over the horizon.

Danger, maybe, but I need
to feel,
to see,
for myself.

The life in the thunderstorm
makes even me come to life.
