Commanding Clouds 

If you’re gonna poke a stick 
at the sky, you’d better chant 
a bit and sell 
a little of your soul. 

There’s a slow pre-thunder 
roll that says we asked for this,
that bliss is just the other side 
of broken

-open clouds. That rain bows 
to higher powers and magic beans
will grow and we absolutely know 
that everything can change

    Oh, I love that “clouds” / “bows” rhyme. Also “slow pre-thunder roll.”

  2. Misky says:

    The way you ended this one is very clever; punchy rhythm like raindrops.

    Wonderful response to the prompt. I like the rain bows and the magic beans. Both make me think of the rainmaker and his promised magic and mastery of the rain clouds.

    Like Misky, I love the ending

    sigh…I felt the RAIN ….Bow.
