Storm Clouds

Horizonís eye blinking and matted
Shut tight against the jamb; weeping
In the turbulence of birthing.
With white-hot fingers scratching
The darkness of pain; pawed
By the low rumbling contractions
Of fissured womb ruptured
Into panting eastward howling
From conception full term.

This is great...you definitely do say so much with so few words!

Oh man Robert, I can see your talent oozing from this piece. And you didn't even had a lot to say either. I know you'll make fans of short poetry proud.

The deepness of your words brings the storm close to me .....Very nice Robert

 I have learned that the pain of a lost love will fade, But the memory of having loved will last forever.

I love this.  So beautifully written that I was speechless for a moment.  Lovely and truly so.
