“She'll be a fierce woman, that one. It'll take a hell of a man to love her right. Be like living with a thunderstorm. Same as her mother. A fierce woman. Force of nature.

They don't know their own minds most of the time, but their hearts are so damn big it hurts em inside.”
Brian Doyle, Mink River

That downpour, that conquered hesitation, that exhilaration

Alberto Caeiro
“And since today’s all there is for now, that’s everything.
Who knows if I’ll be dead the day after tomorrow?
If I’m dead the day after tomorrow, the thunderstorm day after tomorrow
Will be another thunderstorm than if I hadn’t died.
Of course I know thunderstorms don’t fall because I see them,
But if I weren’t in the world,
The world would be different —
There would be me the less —
And the thunderstorm would fall on a different world and would be another thunderstorm.
No matter what happens, what’s falling is what’ll be falling when it falls.

Alberto Caeiro, The Collected Poems of Alberto Caeiro

Adam Silvera
“Sometimes it's okay to be surprised. It's going to sound stupid, and I wouldn't ever say this out loud, but the way Theo and I came out to each other was sort of like getting caught in a thunderstorm. Storms can suck when they're knocking out power and ripping apart houses, no doubt. But other times the thunder is a soundtrack to something unpredictable, something that gets our hearts racing and wakes us up. If someone had warned me about the weather, I might have freaked out and stayed inside.
But I didn't.”
Adam Silvera, History Is All You Left Me

“...lightning forked toward the dry earth, the white light streaking across the sky as if bony fingers reached into the purpling cloud. Thunder shuddered through the early night, the vibrations of it rolling through the cracked soil.”
Alannah K. Pearson, Bone Arrow

to chase a tornado & fall for disaster
willing to hold on when I recklessly strike, like lightning. After my catastrophic personality's storm,
they will whisper -"I love thunder.”
Evelyn Janeidy Arevalo

You can see your reflection
over its mercury embryo.”

Theodore Roosevelt
“Generally the thunder-storms came in the afternoon, but once I saw one at sunrise, driving down the high mountain valleys toward us. It was a very beautiful and almost terrible sight; for the sun rose behind the storm, and shone through the gusty rifts, lighting the mountain-crests here and there, while the plain below lay shrouded in the lingering night. The angry, level rays edged the dark clouds with crimson, and turned the downpour into sheets of golden rain; in the valleys the glimmering mists were tinted every wild hue; and the remotest heavens were lit with flaming glory.”
Theodore Roosevelt, The Rough Riders

Richard L.  Ratliff
“Like nations in a world war
The dark sky throws lightning”
Richard L. Ratliff

curled tresses of the cul de sac
on the road below my lodging.”
Sneha Subramanian Kanta

“Opposites Attack by Stewart Stafford

Winter's eagle talons swoop,
Scratching sweet faces raw,
As battering waves file back,
The coast's jagged teeth further.

Concerts of hedgerow angels,
Storm the dreaded demon field,
Dispensing ancient retribution,
Righting wrongs along the way.

Gladiatorial combat in the Heavens,
Lightning's fiery net crashes against,
Thunder's convulsing cloaking shield,
And the rainstorm's flogging garlands.

“The Taranis Cèilidh by Stewart Stafford

Lightning's jagged spear,
Burning the horizon bright,
Silhouetting empty tables,
No picnics by the waterside.

Waves sloshed against jetties,
A displaced bath on all sides,
Flailing tree chorus genuflected,
To the foaming vat beside them.

The roar of the gale rose and fell,
Tempest's tongue agitated potently,
Leaves surrendered in droves to it,
Sleep deepened in the storm's fury.

“Upon A Stormy Night by Stewart Stafford

Lay that downy head beneath a roof,
Lest the lightning sear those temples,
As the lamb hears the hewing blade,
We sense when the last hour arrives.

Testing thunder of the scolding deities,
A gallows silence rings in every dimple.
Rain, sobbing, weeping for humankind,
with no potent hand to dry damp eyes.

The upturned night's rage passes on,
Sprightly dawn cracks a guardian eye,
Cowed people check the gashed skies,
Grins, not marked by a storm's blemish.
