Thunder is a Dryer in the Sky

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
Increasing tissuelike.

I see your undisturbed, hypnotic calm
And feel a burst of detonation;
Shockwaves unrelated to the storm
Inside my chest.
