sky
pregnant in shades of grey
swirling clouds being carried by angry winds
whipped to a frenzy by nature's fury
clouds burgeoning with rain
air heavy in storm's pause
waiting
all nature attunes it's ear
thunder crashes across the heavens
shaking the earth to it's core
electricity rippling through the atmosphere
in sharp flashes of blue light
as creation watches the birth of a storm
trees relax against the wind's tumult
as the swollen clouds gather force
destruction's power cresting in a silent threat
so imminent
waves crash against the shore in noisy revolt
while howling winds toss humanity aside
like children's toys
pieces of life laying across the earth's tattered skin
as ths storm's fierce crescendo hits
earth bucks against the waging elements from the steel sky
refusing to go down silently
nature screaming a plaintive cry
rocks and life torn asunder
leaving a wake of desolation in it's path
the storm, spent in it's fury
quiets
cruel winds, still
almost in awe of their own force
rain ceases, as saturated earth draws breath
peace
once again
as if the rape of the earth was just a dream
the tentative calls of the birds float across the air
in light wafts compared to the storm's decibel
sun pokes it's fingers down to the soil
in a furtive exploration
trembling rays of light
in the storm's wake
clouds parting
chased away by nature's resilience
as hibernating life steps forth once more
to pick up the pieces
