Poem 143 – Storm on its way

Storm on its way

I used to be terrified
when the maple leaves
flipped over exposing
light green bellies
a message to thunder
& lightning – we’re ready

a storm on its way is as scary as a storm arrived

now I stand at the window
& watch the maple leaves
my fear flipped exposing
a belly tangled with excitement

a storm is on its way gurgling distant skies –

I’m ready
