Free Verse: Lightning Moves Me.

In this free verse poetry, “Lightning Moves Me.”

I think back to the challenges I’ve faced throughout my life, of the pain of loss, of abuses of from hands or words of another, at the poverty stricken moments. Then of the little and the big blessings, of the beautiful children I have given birth to, and my darling Bianca, I adopted, at the age of 47. To start again being a mother.

Lightning Moves Me.

Would I change any of it? That’s a hell no! Lightning moves me. Helps me to feel completely alive. To feel every emotion of happiness and joy, sadness, anger, or pain to the full extent of my extremities, to the core of my being. It’s what makes whom I am today, to breathe life into books, to breathe life into words, so fueled by life’s lightning rod. A little free verse and digital art piece to bring electricity to an eyes sky.

Free verse poetry: Lightning Moves Me

Allow me to be the clouds,
allow me to pour raindrops.
I’m saying I can hold you up,
even the rain retreats to make room
for the sun to shine.
I want to forget all the sun rises
that demand perfection.
Lightning moves me.
Scream into the fierce wind ’till the voice
is hoarse above lightning strikes.
Dear GOD, is this it?
Some fingers strike in a sky pushing
the blue of the day away in a gray
and cotton balls fill with
Teardrops, emptying that way.
