Watching the sunset the thunderstorm brewing
Some feel it threatening or scary
To me it is beautiful.
In my mind the thunderstrom is earths way
of unleashing all its anger
Striking out at innocent victims.

As do us humans do from time to time

Watching the sunrise, the rainbows forming
What a wonderful, unexpected feeling of warmth
that the earth is giving us.

As do us humans do from time to time

Listening to the cries of anguish coming
from the children who do not understand.
Hearing the sweet sound of the singing bird
Oh, how relaxing, understanding their peaceful moment

As do us humans do from time to time

The earth and its living relations
which we question, from time to time,
and the earths response it to wonder
about us, from time to time.

Hey again Kit Kat,
I love this one!
down to earth
where we all should
be all the time,
unfortunately,
the flesh requires
too much for too many.
Therefore most are foolishly
content with time to time.

Yes, very nice, Kitkat!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

I agree with you kitkat. Indeed nature does stew up some fine thunderstorms to reflect how we tend to react to circumstances around us.

Exellent, I love how you relate thunderstorms to the lashing out of the human spirit.  Great work!

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha
