Ennui of Serenity (rewrite)

Flowers, delicate, serene flowers
Bah- 
Give me something with power!
Roar of fighting cats,
An eagle soaring toward prey,
A black cloud of vampire bats!

The happy, tinkling bells 
of a winter sleigh,
Nay-

Give me a wolf's prowling howl
A hurricane come to land!
The hyena eating a thing so foul,
Nature in the raw, wholly unplanned!

* Inspired by Poetry Soup's own Ashok Niyogi  and his poem ENNUI

    Heheh! I like this one a lot. Flowers are nice, and the tinkling sleigh bells are peaceful....but the wolf's howl and hurricanes sure throw down the powerful combos. Excellent. Chris.
