Last night while walking through my dining room
the view outside my window stopped me in my tracks.
Still wet from my bath and not dressed enough to go outside –
I stood frozen in wonder
trying to think of a way to describe
the paint strokes of purple across the clouds
or the fire piercing through the storm
that had not yet awoken
Despite my vast vocabulary
I do not have the words to describe
the beauty of mother nature
But how do you describe something
that renders you speechless?
