Storm Runner

Angry darkness building ahead of me
Gray clarity chasing each step
Lightning does a backflip
and plunges beneath the surface
of the waves
I am moving forward
Smelling the electric air
Earth empties her sobs and rage
upon me
Soaking my soul in heavy, wet emotion
My feet compress the soft skin
of the ground
leaving behind footprint
shaped bruises
I keep moving forward
toward the dark horizon
Letting each step fall
into place
Ready for whatever gets thrown
in the path
