Dusty Rolling Thunder

listen freely, abandon all effort
memories drift like lazy rain,
silence is left by lightening

infinite, quietly crazy,
noisy absent-minded dreams

in distant muted voice,
entertain this ancient friend
tumbleweed on a dusty rolling thunder

tear stained regret,
hope and convulsive expectations
pushing-pulling, stealing souls

bee-stings to run from,
falling from a tree unable to fly,
below the sky all is doubt

love on a cliff afraid of heights,
fleeting kisses, forgotten joy
lost time never passes slowly

death of love of death
denied by instinct,
each grieving moment a new ecstasy

a toddler’s first exuberant step,
finds urgency to witness
this tempest of time

want it, reach for it,
plead, even scream out loud,
the dusty rolling thunder knows

I especially enjoyed the line, “memories drift like lazy rain”, very nice.
