Nature's Fireworks

I
lie awake
watching
the flash
and
flickers
of
lightning
illuminating
my room
in
irregular intervals.

I
count
1...2...3...

CRACK!  BOOM!  CRASH!

Thunder
reverberates
through the cloudburst -
rolling through the night
rolling through my windowpanes
rolling through my heart.

The
incessant
rumbles of thunder
match the
boom-boom-boom
thumping
of my
heart.

I
pray
that each
flash and boom
is
the last...
the finale.

Eventually
the storm
recedes
and
I find
peace and sleep.
