A Midwestern Thunderstorm

I did not know
when I arrived
that the nothing
surrounding everything
would be my favorite part
of the landscape

the pressure lifts
the sky
coming alive
giving life

a traumatic birth
groaning in expectation

water wind fire
all at once
sacred symbols

open font
spirit-filled

I dip my finger
sign of the cross
enter into silence

open heart
spirit fills

I am dipped
evolution
some said it thundered
