You step onto the street outside
Sensing the anticipation
Feel the wind sighing in your face
And know of its coming.
You scan the skies, looking for signs
And watch with wary eyes
Dark, black clouds swarming above you
Like a stampede of wild bisons
Announcing themselves in the savannah
The earth trembles and welcomes its visitor
With a perfume laced with all her creation
That enters your mind through your heart
And stirs up a cocktail of emotions
That you never knew existed.
Birth. Creation. Pausing to be let out.
By a power far beyond the reach of mortals
And then the zeus parts open the skies
With light,causing them to roar.
Then in the momentary second of silence
A hush sweeps across the horizon and
Over you,to go silent
Just at the moment,to let that
One cold,pristine drop of life
Rest on your forehead, and announce
