Thunder

thunder
…….echoes in the soul
.
black with rain
clouds spurt rivers
stark behind sun-glowed poplars
like the rift between heaven and earth—
.
……………………white heat flickers in forks,
.
leaps chasm………….vaults ravine……….jumps fissure
in lightning bursts—
.
the gorge drops bottomless
yet
suspended over
cleft and canyon
.
the promise shines
a million colours
………………….across the breach.


The featured painting is by Grace Carol Bomer, an abstract expressionist painter and mixed media artist in Asheville, NC.
