I hear the distant thunder...
and know the storm is drawing nigh.
I stand out in the open...
with no protection from the sky.
I see lightening on the horizen...
and it is useless now to run.
I cling to the nearest anchor...
until the fury of the storm is done.
As the rain falls from the heavens...
I'm ashamed of where I've been.
And if you're only seeking shelter...
I wonder -- Is it still a sin?

Wow. Your writing so far has been impressive in my opinion.   Would you mind my asking where in Tennessee you are? I used to live there, but it was when I was younger. e-mail me if you prefer not to put it here.   Great writing!

Temptress -- Thank you so much for your glowing remarks.  No one knows that I write and this is the only feedback I receive.  I live in the Tri-Cities, about 45 minutes from Virginia.

Dawn Eclipse --  Thank you so much for taking the time to read my work when there are so many talented poets here.

  T.A. This was excellent!! I've come to look for your posts as they touch my heart...Thank you for sharing this....And I know what you mean about writing "from the closet"....I used to share mine and do now and then but for the most part they are for Passion's and my eyes only.
