Storm Before Sunset - Poem by Benjamin Jansen

Energy floats freely throughout the air,
Intakes of breath vitalize the mind and enhance the soul,
Excitement grows and body's move rapidly,
A rain dance happens just by chance,
Only follows the wind,
Hair blows and voices tremble,
Life becomes a graveyard of anticipation,
While the earth sings another act of powerful organic symphonies,
The creatures lay quiet until intermission,
A burst of joy reckons the sound waves,
A glorious uplifting applause follows for days to come,
Until mother earth is prepared for another one.

    Life becomes a graveyard of anticipation,
    A very good line. :) And can be precieved many ways
