rain falling in distortion
upon crystal panes
(as I watch, coffee warming my fingers)
the ocean crashing thunderously
punishing the sandy beach
as it leaves tell tale signs behind
seaweed and pieces of life
strewn upon the beach like
scattered seeds upon the soil
the sand soaks the rain drops
up in thirsty drips
while the seagulls swoop and cry
against the storm
against the coming night
picking through the wreckage
on the sandy shore
hunting for a scrap
for something to fulfill their hunger on

here and there the sun
pokes holes in the clouds
attempting to arrest the storm
before it hits full force
finally the clouds part
revealing a fresh scrubbed terrain
so sweet and new smelling
as I grab my coat and head to see
what nature's fury has left in her wake

------------------
"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself,
than to be crowded on a velvet cushion."
