exploding with emotion
and he left his bed
to check the temperature of the night:
its crashing sounds
and startled sky
jugular ribbons and white streaks
a cacophony of crescendos.
In spite of storms where monsters
his mind races to days
when good ole mom sprinkled away
childish fears with Holy water
in each bedroom hideaway.
Gaining a toe-hold on the
many precipices of life
attained success and standing
in spite of such
storms confronting him--
now carefully closes the window
longing for past moments
as a child when he raised youthful
lips to the sky
trusting in the purity of rain
descending and gulped hungrily at the
moisture received in the
innocence of life.
Without further fanfare
he stomps across the cold floor
and returns to the bedroom
of his desires; wraps himself in the
comfort of his wife's embrace.
