Fighting With You

Fighting With You

Everyone loves a storm.
No forecast can predict what it will do.

We are enticed in that moment.
Oh, the damage. We run outside to take it in.

Something about fury we cannot control
intrigues us. Especially as it inflicts others.
We re-assess our own insurance coverage
but other than that -- God help them!

When I know I have displeased you
there is not even time to gather lawn chairs.
Those eyes squint. There is no turning the channel.

In light of the above, forgive my fascination --

Because even then, I only love you.

Only a person who has lived fully could write such a poem.
Beautifully executed.
