Dancing Through the Storm

By Amy Richburg, age 16, Kentucky


Gray clouds gather in the fresh spring sky
Glaring down towards the shingled roofs of the city
Growling voice, sharp on glass windows

I gaze back up at the sinking rain
Reaching towards the misty droplets
Pressing my palms against the cold

Dazzling beams of light shock across my eyes
Amazing me with their incomparable beauty
Nighttime hues drift over the daytime city
Colorless and yet even more lovely
Even with the thunder roaring deafeningly, I smile

I grin, the world radiant in my picture frame view
