Storm by Celia Turner

Celia Turner | May 28th, 2024 | a poem a day challenge | No Comments


Smoky thunderhead’s anvil
risen to broker lightning.
I sit rapt, night blind, waiting
for forked crescendo
to illuminate delicate
edges of clouds.
All around horizon
rumble presages
of sky with sky,
earth, eau d’ ozone,
each one enough
to power the grid
but we can’t capture
this mad parade of power.

Stay away from the windows
my mother said.
I can’t.
