Collaboration: Storm by thedawnthaterupts and Jill Joy

This post is a collaboration between thedawnthaterupts (Gayle) and me. I subscribe to the dawnthaterupts and find her poetry resonates with my current experiences, which always seems something of a small miracle. But then isn’t that what art is about? We get to see and now ourselves through someone else’s expression. Recently Gayle posted Storm. I executed a painting of the same name some months ago and it was as though Gayle had put words to my image. I am continually fascinated and excited by the spontaneous collaboration that the community of artist, bloggers and poets on wordpress.com provides me.

Storm

There is a storm coming,
Can’t you feel it?
The ground shakes with
Anticipation
As your footsteps
Lead,
Your presence a foundation
For worry,
And your fists tighten and
Clench with
Rugged rhythm.

The rain is coming,
And I am without shelter,
Without a chance for
Warmth,
Blindsided by the
Winds that brought you.

There is a storm coming.
I see the clouds in the distance.
