Thunder Lily




She bursts into bloom
from a wild and furious storm.
Her fire fuelled by lightning,
voice powered by thunder
roaring from deep within her belly.

Dark clouds bring hard rain
to help her grow tall
rooting her strong into moist soil.

She has no time to mourn the sun
whilst being birthed by the storm.
When she is finally ready
her mother whispers,

“Thunder lily…
From darkness you came
so you will never fear
the full force of creation and
destruction, you will always
know the wholeness of your
self and that the calm light
of day is not the only source
of nourishment.

Do not forget how you first
bloomed into being
wild one.”
