a severe storm watch is in effect

i once trembled
as the sky turned green
calm conquered the wind
sirens sounded in the distance

while others set up camp
camcorders at the ready
seemingly eager for calamity
i cowered in a ceramic corner

but the stream of years
has eroded such anxieties
now I listen for cataclysmic thunder
and almost hope to spot a hook in the sky

but as seconds tick by
with secret hopes unfulfilled
and the years assault
the levies of opportunity

i still tremble
