Thunder

The day has broken into a piece of the night
The ground is pregnant below my feet after the rain
We are left wet with echoing screams
What a fool I have been to wish for the passage of time,
costume myself as the conqueror of life the faster it brings death
thunder claps and now we know more of hidden power
the shattered rib, the beating heart, ear to ear
self to self, self to sky, arms high
the spectacle has become familiar posture
enlightenment as a voyeur’s delight
God has given us life to know one another
(I know you too well to escape the screams of mutual thunder)
the Earth will wait as fertile body
human seeds sprouting violent and anxious for sun
we are wet with hope
He made us to know one another and it may never be
tonight you have life only to know yourself.
