Thunder rolls and cracks

Thunder rolls and cracks
Outside the window
Rain falls in endless streams
While lightning flashes across the sky
Sitting in this storm
I turn to this beauty
As if in a dream
No looking, just seeing
Then in the stillness
After rain stops falling
And the thunder moves
To whisper in the distance
I do the same
A bird flies
A flower blooms
A river flows
I am home
Sitting in this brilliant mystery
Placed upon my palm
There is no holding
Only its release
A butterfly finds its wing
Beauty fills me
Though I know it has always been
A waterfall fills the quiet pool
A wave on the ocean
A firefly light in the night
Completes me
