Rain batters calm shores,
Great waves take boulders to sea.
You are the sharp wind,
Blowing through my blood like ice.
Sharpened siblinghood cuts through.
Lightning flashes bright,
The air alights and thunder rolls.
I am the tree hit.
They did not ask why you struck,
Only why I grew too tall.
Safe in the dark cave
She waits for the storm to pass.
I sit in the cold,
Scorn seeps through my wounded pride.
Remember, I reflect you.
