Poetry A-Z: The Torrential Storm

The Torrential Storm

And the sky
Burst forward, a torrential
Combustion of energy
Dances across the sky
Electric wings
Flapping —
Gale winds
Hurry consumers
Inside buildings and cars —
Jostling leaves gather
Kerbside
Lampposts flicker off and on, a
Makeshift SOS in the storm
No rescue, abandoned all —
Only Nature rules this place, her
Piercing anger howls and then
Quiet and calm
Reward the land
Such peace one has never known
Til the beast spins and rips, tears and shreds
Utility poles and trees to the ground
Vast darkness
Wanders throughout the town, a
Xanthous sky hovers low —
Yet moments later, as fast as he came, the beast
Zips up into the clouds and is gone.
