The Storm….love poetry

The Storm (Oct 2000)
by Diane Tegarden

Wind in the trees, whispering invitations
“come with me, pleeeease”

a sigh, then surrender,

she is willing.

The snake is coiled at the base of our souls
we charm her awake, tease her, then rock and roll,
in a riotous moment
we tumble into the storm.

A lightning bolt of energy rushes through my inner core
as the snake rises up and flies away,
reborn, a dragon of the sky.

While we ride the dragon upon that wild wind
we are high above all the demons of earth.

Too soon, we must wend our way back down,
the dragon will alight. We climb down.
Look around, I’ll be with you
in the calm
the storm.

Written for my beautiful man, Wade Webb.

  2. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and
    amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.
