A Great Lakes Summer Storm Haiku

adrift, clouds repast
before, an azure blue sky
adrift, clouds pour forth
breakers, restless wind
caps whitened by stormy seas
freshwater rushing
grey, dark Lake Huron
observed from the northeast dunes
lulls me to sleepward
when I wake, freshened
lit inordinately bright
I Rush! Take A Dip!
diving a breaker
headlong, stretching out, reaching
clear as I surface
drying on the sand
gazing skyward toward heaven
azure clouds float by
