Desert Thunder

“Desert Thunder” is a collaborative poem written by Suzann Kotchka, Katie Marion, Scott Cowie, Damien Shaw, Lillian Atkinson, and me.


“Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.” Storm Jameson

In my life, marks the hope of much wonder.
In her presence, my heart beats of thunder.

A streak of white light, a loud crashing boom,
The strings of my heart stretch thin on the loom.

Dying in cave clutter, I meet lightning-
Her touch, overwhelmingly frightening…

Trying to focus on the canyon clay,
Wholesome creation faints from disarray.

Faith blinks in laver, wakes my sufferance.
Dust devils come quickly. Vanish. Dispense…

Cloudy glass, channels of forte-fire,
Crump from crusades, in limbo, I love her!

Her love is found by fate on arrival.
Notions encompass on my own survival.

From the depths, I must delve into my soul.
I knowingly relinquish surreal control.

When I was weak, I could never forgive.
Happiness is not forgetting to live.
