Aweni, was my choice for Poet of the Week last week. But, wait until you read her Haibun poem for this week. I love it! ❤
Today, it rained. I saw thunder and lightning dance in the heavens as earth became soft and yielding with the showers. I begged Smaerd to tell me of rain. He looked at me and said “tell me what you know.” My mind quivered as I looked inwards into my own thoughts, for this was a question I had never ruminated on. Eventually I spoke and the following words came out of my mouth, “they believe it is an abundance of Earth made from Earth for Earth. However, I beg to differ and say it is the lovemaking between Heaven and Earth. Lightning and thunder, their orgasm. Rain is a nurturing string that keeps the heart of Earth beating and the lungs of Heaven breathing. Sometimes theirs is a quickie, other times, they make no haste.”
Douses his thirst and her needs.
A union of light.
Smaerd smiled at me…
