“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Storm a-Brewin’

ominous

Dark, ominous clouds

Gather looming high and low

On a restless sea

Wild Nights

Image

 

Wild nights! Wild nights!

Were I with thee,

Wild nights should be

Our luxury!

 

Futile the winds

To a heart in port, —

Done with the compass,

Done with the chart.

 

Rowing in Eden!

Ah! the sea!

Might I but moor

Tonight in thee!

~Emily Dickinson~

Keep Us

To the people suffering through flooding and landslides across Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic…

When the rain set in we had nowhere left to go
so we just stayed in bed while the thunder rolled
there’s a comfort in the rain, one that lovers only know so we lay hand in hand while the water rose…

Every season will turn til the world is upside down
rivers overflow then go underground
but in the eye of the storm, in the safety of this house
we lay hand in hand while the world turns wrong.

So keep us and keep us, keep us from the storm.

There’s a lesson in the rain that change will always come
let us ride this wave and then greet the sun
and though the ground may shake and we’ll think
we’ve had enough
we must raise our flags for the ones we love.

So keep us and keep us, keep us from the storm.
Keep us and keep us and keep us from the storm.
