"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
-Henry David Thoreau

The car door slams hard
And I’m transported to another realm
The world lies still aside from the storm
Rain plummets down
With the sound of applause in a stadium
Each minuscule movement joined together
For a triumphantly powerful sound

A nearby crow speaks
Though the fluid air
Like a DJ adding his two-cents
The sound muffled by the rain

The thunder strikes
Like the angry pounding on a Lambeg
Followed by the pulsing lightning
Similar to a strobe light in a club

I would continue this except
The person I was waiting for
Just got back into the car
Halting the mystifying thoughts
Bringing me back
Into a fast paced world–into reality
Exactly where I don’t want to be

The author's comments:
When I wrote this piece it was raining outside, and my mom had just parked the car in the convient store's parking lot and said she'd be right back. I sat there a few moments listening to the rain hitting the car. Soon I began thinking about the other elements of a storm and what they reminded me of. The first few comparisons had to do with a party, I I simply stuck with it. Pretty soon Mom came back witht he stuff she needed to pick up and the inspriation left me almost entirely-- however i was able to sum up the end there. Through this poem I hope to bring people on a ride and allow they to experience the magic nature can provide.
