STORM

When clouds break in a dreary sky
and birds toward sheltered branches fly . . .
I sit in weary solitude . . .
engulfed by some enchanted mood.

The grayness that fortells a storm . . .
stirs feelings in my veins so warm.
Through half-closed lids I watch the worry . . .
of countless clouds that seem to hurry.

The will of Him who cautions all . . .
shall soon command the rain to fall.
And as the drops slowly hit the ground . . .
It makes such a musically pleasant sound.
While others fret and wish for warm . . .
I'm quite happy in a pensive storm!

  2. my country has only two seasons. the wet and the dry. i love it hot and i go pensive during wet season. but the greens would soon color my world so i take every season as it comes. for it will serve it's purpose all through the years...

  7. I agree 100% Margie...there is something awe-inspiring about a storm...I wrote my first poem at age 12 because of the wonder at seeing such awesome power...thanks for bringing back those memories again.

  9. Hi, Margie! Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving your nice comments! (I'll forgive you for putting Art's name in the comment - he's a character, isn't he?)

    Your poetry is great! The one about the storm makes me think of my daughter. She's happiest when it's raining and there is thunder and lightning all around!
