The lightning strikes

and thunderclaps

in response to its


while torrent drifts

and dissipates

as remnant drizzles

gently rinse

the turmoil from

tempestuous days

when dark clouds

ruled the sky

now restored by

hopeful rays

I breath

a heavy sigh

sun quenches deep

my pallor soul

and rejuvenates

my skin

and I reserve

a single smile

for when it storms
