Force

1.

have i

been dead

or just asleep?
walking around aimless

breathing…

hearing, seeing, thinking…

but numb.

why does it take

lightening

and thunder

to wake one up,

to snap one 

to attention?

to open awareness 

stimulate assessment

bring laughter

bring tears

bring one

to one’s knees?

2.

you

are a power–

a force

a statement of reckoning,

a truth.

you are a blizzard,

a tornado,

a forest fire,

a tsunami!

and i

am bits of earth

fluttering

in the wake

of your

approach.
