    What’s not to love about this? I love thunderstorms, don’t get many where I live now, miss them terribly. The first half of the poem captures the atmosphere perfectly. My favourite lines are these:

    “giving new life again
    giving new hope again”

    Simple, beautiful and full of joy.

  2. Love this. Nice mother, son collaboration.

    I love that you collaborate with your mom on stuff. Lightning’s a double edged sword over here in this season (as I assume it is anywhere that sees high temperatures). As we move into the heat of summer, it brings hope and fear for life – rain and bushfire. The yin and yang.

      Yes, same for Texas, but they had rain so things are okay. New Mexico lightning is also bad….two HUGE fires last year, but found out yesterday one was caused by immigrants coming across the border.

    This is beautiful.
    Fits in perfectly with the kind of beauty you make.
    Some family!
