Just a groovin' little line of bass,
rushing wind through eaves and cracks...
God's blowin' on the harp tonight
(watch this train roll down the tracks...)

Raphael picks out the lead,
bending branches in the trees.
Cymbals too, are keeping time
on rusty old forgotten chime--
only sound I ever heard them make.

It's pretty, when transformers blow--
sparks of blue and then green flare.
A ritual of lighting lamps
to meet the eyes of silent stare.

Windows breathe at times like these--
glass bends in frames made loose.
Sheets of rain--slanted--pounding--
cease suddenly, as if on cue.

It comes in waves, labor pains,
each contraction less forgiving...
and always echo of the thought--
"what about The River?"

In Mother Nature's blender, now,
at Elements command--
when comes that THING
(surprising me)
that only Silence understands...

   --Unbolt the door
       so we'll feel more,
(balmy-sweet tranquility...)
     for there within the eye of storm
     dances serenity.

this is awesome serenity...excellent rhyme and flow...the pace is perfect...
very nice work...take your bow...I'll put another quarter in the juke box and we can watch you dance again...
take care, jm

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

Sweet Serenity~

This is absolutely the best !
The storm moved lyrically through
the entire piece.
Held me spell-bound to the end and
then back to read again.
It was almost as though I could
envision you singing and dancing
through the storm.

Image jumps off the page.
Never too much ...
it ran until the storm played out.
Just wonderful, gal.
Love ya'

Janet Marie--Divine words from a dvine poet!
            I appreciate your understanding.

devina--glad you enjoyed-love & peace to you.

Marge--I feel like I've just been patted on
       the head.  This comes from a tradition
       of "riding out the hurricane," here in
       Bayou country.  (says a little some-
       thing about me- doncha think?)  But
       more about that later!   Right now I'm
       sending smiles and hugs across the
       miles to you!

dsnyder-so glad I made ya look!  Always my
       pleasure to hear from you!

'hoot'--thank you.  Your warmth& kindness
       have not gone unnoticed.   Thanks.

Serenity....breathtaking.  I love the images.  Great flow throughout....not too long at all!!

This poem took me back to hurricane Andrew (miami)...i felt the tension in my chest...and I felt great relief as you took me to the that wonderful moment....the eye of the storm. EXCELLENT!

take care,

I always love a good storm
Fascination holds me in its' grip
Sat out once on my front porch til trees across the street were uprooted ... then headed for the basement ... only tornado I've ever seen ... wouldn't have experienced it if I ran and hid
