Cheering the Storm

The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

The evening sky goes gray, the smell of a summer storm hanging in the air

the trees ripple in a wind pregnant with humidity

night overwhelms evening, wrapping us in a blanket of darkness

and the smell of ozone scorching

ragged rips of lighting tear apart the black night

Listen! Hear the sky cracking apart

Look! See the brilliant booming blooms of light

The rain pounds down upon the parched earth,

steaming and misting, drifting with the gusts

I laugh and clap my hands

as the storm bangs on and on
