a weather witch's vengeance
You think the worst you can see is a storm;
you do not know the power of sun,
of dazzling brightness, of a dryness that puckers all to sour citrus.
I will crisp your bones with my heat,
I will swallow your mind whole with this fire
and watch as you stumble,
Soon you will learn not to wrong
that which you can never understand.
