The Cardinal in a Thunderstorm

The soprano trill
between claps of thunder
fills the room
with rhythm,
treble
balancing the storm’s
percussion.

His verse an offering
of love
organic
inclusive
absolute
a brave sound
to witness.

Awake in nature’s song
I think of you
the way our strengths
harmonize
and the intimacy
of sharing
a thunderstorm.
