A Storm


 A storm is brewing in the east

Birds and animals seem to retreat

Air is still and nature has a solemn feel

Dark clouds conceal the pleasant land scape

Ghastly winds precede

Thunder and lightning gives an eerie feel

Rain gushes down in torrents

The feeling you get is not so pleasant

 Apprehension takes over common sense

 And you sincerely wait for the drama to end

  • L. B. Mek

    that same cocktail storm of chaos,
    is being experienced all around the world
    we're all holding-on, to our grasp of sanity
    and civility, hoping
    that our day to day reality, can be cushioned
    by our nightly dreams and wishes..
    (a genuine poem, with sincerity and wordsmith artistry,
    I would be very proud to have penned such a stark, yet honest portrait of modernity)
    thank you for sharing, dear poet

      Heartbreakingly beautiful! Nature's wrath can be swift and harsh, despite its innate beauty.

      Thank you Jennifer
