Under the Clouds,

It struck again today,
the clouds rolled in, the skies darkened,
the sharp thunderclaps echoed all around,
continuously for about two hours,
the light show was amazing,
our house was in darkness,
no phone, computer, or t.v.
so we held hands and watched the show all around us.
The rain pelted upon the windows,
stronger and stronger,
harder and harder,
I fear there will not be a flower standing in the morning,
I hope the homeless found shelter tonight,
the winds were harsh and we could see the branches bending
and blowing in the wind.
Though I like a good storm,
this one was almost too harsh,
the thunder and lightning too close,
leaving an eerie almost haunting feeling,
reminded of the havoc a storm can do
all in a moment, in a blink of an eye.
and then a smile spread over my face,
with all the noise and being startled,
and sudden thunder claps,
I had not had one Cataplexy spell,
I was no longer startled by the loud thunder,
and  I had noticed while the boys were visiting,
that even with all the laughter there were no Cataplexy spells.
Maybe we finally have the right combination of the pills,
even though I am tired to not be falling is a wonderful thing.
So in the harshness of the storm came hope that
maybe just maybe 
I have found my rainbow.
At the end of the rainbow I am not looking for a pot of gold,
I just want my health.
The last few weeks have been so busy for me, the boys went home today,
and surprisingly enough I enjoyed the quiet of my day,
both of them phoned to thank me for all the fun we had,
and it was nice of my sister to have left me the post on my blog.
my hubby is off tomorrow, we have to go see his Mom in the hospital,
she has had pneumonia, and then Wednesday morning I have some tests done
that I believe will not be the most pleasant,
so after that I am coming to visit and spend time at all your blogs.
Wishing you the very best of days.

  2. I like the storms ... even the harsh ones ... lol ... makes me feel alive ... that sounds weird, right?! lol ... anyway ... I'm happy you feel better and positive I did love the other post as well ...may the rainbow shine upon you always :-)

  3. Storms can be so exhilarating! But when they are close, makes me a little nervous as well.
    I am so glad that cataplexy has been leaving you alone. I too hope it is the right combo of pills. That would be super. Hope MIL is doing well now? And that your tests aren't as uncomfortable as you fear they will be.
    Enjoy the calm and the rainbow!!

  4. I wish you continued success with controlling your personal storm, Cinner. Rainbows are a wonderful sign of hope and promise!

  12. Birdie, you love the storms, my Dad used to sit out in his truck watching the thunder and lightning. he loved a storm, I usually don't mind, but it was close. the boys and I had painted the fence and on the top 2 by 4, all the paint was pelted right off...strange, maybe it had not dried....oh well, more work to do. thank you for wishing me better health, it gives me hope that I one day may be able to drive again. will see. Hope you are well, hugs.

  14. i have come for a visit and am glad to read that the "storms" are over ...tests and all!

    I love the metaphor that the storm in the skys can mirror the storms in life...
