storms of blue and green

the loudest storm inside my head
broke out in silence today
awoken from its solitude
and its peaceful retreat
conjured up
to keep hope from
teasing its tail
at the reach of my hand
and I sighed
knowing that
the handprint that lays
upon my heart
has faded through time
but its outline
carved deeply inline
with perfection
is permanent
and as the waves crashed
and the wind whistled piercingly
desperately trying to shake me
I allowed it to roll over me
in all its blues and greens
and I rode it out
once again
