in a Quadrilew poem
I sit and watch the clouds,
as lightning flashes
through the darkening shrouds
and thunder crashes.

As lightning flashes
thoughts of past through my mind,
the present clashes
in tumultuous grind.

When the darkening shrouds
envelop my soul,
creeping depression crowds
and takes painful toll.

The thunder crashes,
and I tremble with fright,
until the clashes
bring me something to write.
