Respect For The Storm

Amused and bewildered by one event in my life
Drinking my coffee one fine summer morning
While feasting on some apple strudel
A clap of thunder from out of nowhere

I quickly grabbed the aglet on the umbrella
I reconfigured the contraption into a closed state
Then as if in conjunction with my activity
Lightning struck the pole in my hands with a glance

As if I were lighter than the air itself
I was flung across the island from the force
My senses feeling as charred as a well done steak
Time seemed to stand still in perpetuity

I recovered to scurry for the nearest shelter
From this day forward I would never forget
How close I came to nature ending my fate
I have gained forever respect for the storm

    Hey Richard, enjoying your poetry on a snowy day here. I’d give ya more fodder if you’d attribute the words with some linky luv. You’re an IT guy I’m sure u can figure out an eazy call to the twitter API to do it for you and make it nice and automatic. If not, would you like me to have a go at it?

      I list the people who contribute but since I get 10-15 contributers per day on average I don’t want my posts to have 10-15 outbound links in a single post.
