All around awesome author and person Jackie Smith mentioned something about lightning and thunder that really inspired me. So, I rolled with it. And I tumbled. And I came out dry. Enjoy.
Thunder is a Dryer in the Sky
Thunder is a dryer in the sky.
Tumble those cloud clothes.
Circulate your heated air.
Draw in the cool, low rumble of inertia;
Mellow gravity near cushions;
Humming cotton delicates;
Sharp cracks of easing temperature
I see your undisturbed, hypnotic calm
And feel a burst of detonation;
Shockwaves unrelated to the storm
Inside my chest.
