Waiting for the Storm to Pass




Waiting for the Storm to Pass

Waiting
For the storm to pass
Trusting
In quietness

Such is the way
Of the troubled mind
It’s simply
A matter of time

Out of gear, disengaged
The ignition switch is off
Yet overheated
The psyche motor still runs

Sputtering, Popping
Knocking
Smoking
Eventually the motor will die

Like the summer thunderstorm
Dark
Cloudy
No end in sight

Then giving way
To cool clean air
And clear
Open blue skies
