( I wrote this the other day as I watched the storm roll in, more of a prose type poem and strickly inpromptu)

Your Storm

I stand before the open window,
raising my arms in the air;
the coolness of the breeze,
just before the rain comes,
washes over my skin in waves.
The air is charged with electric,
so full of energy.
The storm approaching in the distance
teases me with it's nearness.
A flash of light peaks
above the tree tops
and the soft roar of thunder follows.
I wait,
longing for the rain.
Soft drops begin to fall
from the now darkened sky;
the breeze blows them gently
against my bare flesh,
their coolness sizzling
on my hot skin.
I feel your hand upon my shoulder,
turning me into you.
I glance whistfully into your eyes
seeing a storm all your own
reflected there...
you pull me towards you
and together we make thunder.
