Storm Clouds

the earth is my mother
the sky is my father
between them the air that I breathe

in storm clouds black brooding
they meet for their quarrel
in lightning my dreams are conceived

the wind and the water
my own two dear sisters
they sing of dark fears to believe

and all of my hopes and
my wishes for daylight
will break with the sunset unseen

Take shelter from rainstorms
lest you fall confounded
in wakeful black slumber deceived

the thunder that whispers
will pass into silence
and stars to new sunrise shall lead.
