Billowing and dark, the cloud
beyond the blue horizon
peaks like a mighty mountain reaching high
as if to touch the sun that shines so bright
beyond the furthest reaches of the sky

And in reaching for the light
the illusion of its rage is spent
as its veil of darkness is rent
by the fury of a lightning strike

and I watch the darkness lighten
with the rain
and know that soon
the sun will shine again
