A goodnight to the Day

The sun
has quickly
descended into
the night
that has
awakened as
I slowly close 
my back door
signing a 
goodnight to
the struggle 
of the day
when I hear
the thunder 
echo in
the distance
wondering if
there will be
a storm
on this 
quite night
for I feel
I need
a storm
and as 
I think
I see the
glow of
lighting from
the shaded
window just
as the rain
drops hit
the pane 
with breath
of sigh
the storm
has arrived.

Night air

The night
is warm
hot air
against my face
the sweat rolling
down my back
as the first
rain drop
hits the earth
splattering on
my flesh,
the soft
wind cooly
lifts the
hair off the
back of my  neck
closing my eyes
to its sweet relief.
