|Storms Come and Go

How is the Weather? : Choka 15
Distant clouds rolling
Carrying nature’s fury
Along with tolling
Of thunder in a hurry,
Wind rips the beaches
As water pulls them to sea
Waves over reaches
Where sunbathers used to be,
In days yet to come
When the weather’s wind subsides,
And rain stops it drum
And there’s a day of low tides
Storm clouds go rolling
Darkening another sky
As the weather’s rolling by
Return to Calm : Sonnet
The trees have stopped their bending to the wind,
The waves have slacked their pounding on the sands,
People come slowly from shelter they’ve been in
To see what has fallen and what now stands.
The beaches water raped rushing waves
Tears sands and houses back into the sea,
Mementoes gone no thoughts they now can save;
Survivors alive and content to be.
Those that fled inland now slowly return,
To see what raging storm’s damage had done,
Some look stone face other cry when they learn
What little remains and all that is gone.
Slowly they one by one start rebuilding
But together they remain unyielding.
Actually these two were wrote separately
and combined so as not to use too much space
