Dreams Like Thunder - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Chain lightning rolls like dreams
through the dead of night,
on and on it goes
far out of sight -
The sky so dread
only the thunder is heard,
everyone down here afraid
to speak a whispering word -
No one knows
should they cry, should they laugh...
the end, surely is coming
at long last -
But, is it truly the end, or
simply the start?
Listen. The thunder coincides with
the beats of your heart!

    What a excellent poem...
    I love lightning and thunder, as it makes us all wonder...
    Is it the beginning or the end, here is my thought I now send.
    Great poem, Smoky, thanks for sharing!
