Tempest of May-Be

by Shawn Allen

The energy of possibility is lightning on the horizon.
The instantaneous flash far from your grasp;
an event beyond your control.
When the truth hits you like thunder –
that this is an illusion – you know you can reach out
and grab the lightning.
In that moment, you are the master of this
tempest of may-be, and the storm is yours
to control.
Where will you hurl your bolts?
And where will you cause the rain to fall?
