Thunderhead

I

When clouds roll in
and obscure our light
there is nothing I know to do
but bend backwards
as far as my backbone allows
and hold my breath.

 

II

Dissatisfaction and annoyance
has the ability to break bones
and leave a body dry,
bleached, brittle in the rain.

 

III

Smile on me, sunshine.
For I am weak without you.
Shine on me.
For I lose direction without
your light to give me guiding shadows.
