The Tempest



The evening floats in on the down of a dove wing

Fledgling birds are huddled  all cozy in their nest,
while the blizzard- like storm crept in unnoticed

Shielded in a makeshift bunker,  I marvel at  how brief,
yet so powerful the storm played out

My heart skips a beat with every thunder trumpet

My hands fall from my ears as I search the
magnificent sky for signs of turquoise

Here in the quiet aftermath I listen for the
last wind of the day to soften.

  4. You made me "experience" the thunderous nature of this storm, Helena... followed by the dead calm...

    Your words evoked a sense of dread in me... gave me goosebumps really... VERY WELL WRITTEN!!

  5. there seemed such a peacefulness at the end, but i guess after the storm it is easy to let go off the tension felt during the storm. i do though worry a bit about the bird...
