eagle storm

i race
across the plains
on a blue-coated horse.

sage is crushed
under hoof,
scenting the air
with something
that cannot be named.

a storm on the horizon.
i leap into its heart
and touch the thunder beings.

the rain pauses
its fall
and gifts me with 
a gown embellished
with a million raindrops --
all with a universe inside.

an eagle shrieks in the sky
and talons clash together
as the plunge and return begins.

"wait for me,"
it urges.
"i am coming."

and i trust that this is so.
