Midnight Rain
By Viola I. Paradise
From “Weather Whims”

THE LIGHTNING pricks my heavy eyes awake.
My body, thunderstung
Out of its sluggish sleep,
Resents this midnight waking.
But soon        5
The long soft sibilant rain
Brings to the night a deep new rest.
The storm recedes,
And on the far warm low voluptuous thunder
I am rolled back to sleep.        10
