Spirits in the Stormy Night

Updated on March 27, 2019

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Long into the night,

as the rain came down,

I watched the raindrops,

streaming against my window pane,

they seemed to carry a message -

from the dark skies above.

Each raindrop,

a quiet hello,

mingling with the teardrops,

rolling down my cheeks,

my forehead pressed against the window,

my hand seeking yours –

with greetings from the dark, stormy sky.

The clouds played among shadows,

the moon tried to peek out,

the wind tossed the tree branches about

and dark clouds played shadow games -

with the streaming moonlight.

Somewhere between the light

and the dark,

I imagined I could see –

the shadow of your smile.

The night turned stormy and wild,

there seemed to be so much mystic magic,

that filled the skies.

As the rain continued lashing down,

the wind began to howl,

mysterious and magical,

such storms are.

This soon turned into an electrical light show,

fascinating to watch and see,

as the rain continued to cascade down,

making my imagination dance

and my heart to beat faster,

imagine seeing spirits -

dancing across the rainy night sky.

While the wind still whispered

and the raindrops shimmered,

your voice in my ear I heard

and knew you loved me still.

      Thank you, Shauna. I am eagerly awaiting that first dramatic thunderstorm.

      Thank you, Michael. We get those really huge thunder rolls because we live right between the ocean and the river.

      Rasma, the lightening storms here in Florida are beautiful (as long as you're indoors looking out).

      This poem is beautiful and picturesque. And yes, he still loves you!

      The sky darkened and it started to shower. Now it is clearing up. I was a little spooked. I wonder if the big guy upstairs was listening to me. My inspiration comes from my every day routine. I get to live and enjoy my life. Then I am blessed to share it with the world. When I read your hubs you find a beautiful way to connect. Things that I already see and feel you are able to turn into words.

      It is sunny and beautiful today. After reading your hub I want it to pour. I want to hear the thunderstorms loud bursts and look through a window pain and see the rain. Thank you for sharing your incredible talent.

      This is absolutely beautiful! I could see the stormy night in your poetic words. I also felt the longing as you gazed out your window…..
