Heart-Skips in the Storm

Holding on
through the storms
has never been good
analogy for me;
for nothing like a storm 
gives way to the power
dormant previously,

asleep, forgetful
of my potential;
when the storm arrives,
it excitedly arises
from my inner-deep.

The let-down
is when it
recedes,
but it leaves
its rumbles
astir in me
and wakes
the memories
of past-life dreams… 

The last
of the thunder
echoes in the distance
as the first notes
of the first birdsong
overlap in the natural
chorus;

powerful in itself
is that herald call,
the first to surface
in the after
of the storm.
