Electrical Caffeine

That Peculiar Effect of Lightning

While I can't stand strong winds
I love a good rainstorm. 
The louder the better.

The harder the downpour,
the brighter the flashes,
the more explosive the thunder claps

the more I feel part of the storm. 
Some storms carry me away
I sleep more soundly.

In the morning, I open the window
onto a drenched world.
I pour my coffee, same as always

But look onto a mirror  remembering
that those days after such massive storms
I feel like I am already flying.

As if the lightning has
already filled my veins
with electrical caffeine.
