what provokes the sky into screaming as it splits...
what provokes the sky
into screaming as it splits,
releasing heavy breaths
and lightening, squirting water?
is it the madness of orgasm
explosive and stark,
that the clouds
I watch the sky shiver first;
stated woman of robust offerings
as though the thrusts of nature
have reached that top,
and its heavy breaths are tremors
running through her thighs
settling as cold hot steam
the wind carries her heavy breaths,
slowly, then inaudibly
assuming the scent of dew
