I Would Say I Embraced The Storm

This is not metaphorical

Or symbolic.

There are no literary devices at play today.

This, just was.

I found myself with nothing to do.

So I decided to take myself up the mountain.

There were no friends to make the climb social,

There was no purpose or goal to meet.

It was just something to do

To fill some time.

And something to do

That sounded like a good idea.

I went to the base and saw clouds in the far distance.

I went up the mountain

Hoping to sit and write

Or sit and draw

Or sit and breathe.

Because sitting on top of a mountain,


Is better than sitting on the couch,



When you are standing on top of the mountain

And the clouds envelope you.


The storm wraps it’s self around you.

If this was a brilliant literary piece

I would say I embraced the storm.


Because this is just about what was,

The truth needs told.

I turned

And ran like hell down the mountain.

  1. Sometimes I’ve stood in a literal storm and sometimes I run from the metaphorical ones. Sometimes it’s the other way around. And sometimes I write about what was, and sometimes I like to read about what was. Like this.


  2. You put a smile on this face. I have little in the way of such beautiful a view and I surely can no longer run like hell. Thanks for letting be go along on your climb. It was fun from right here.


      • I think you are amazing that you climbed it by yourself. You are a brave woman I love that about you. We get so much lighting in our storms that we get locations of the strikes. Just two nights ago we had one very close. Now that scares me. Have a wonderful evening my dear Colleen. Love yaπŸ€—, Joni
