Lighthouse and the Turbines

Striking beauty reflects from the ocean Lighthouse pours out its light on the water Playing with its powers it shines so bright In the dark, light tends to make things greater Nearby are some turbines collecting wind Some old, some new, of which serve a purpose Beauty of their form brings certain nostalgia Being with the lighthouse is a bonus There comes a time when a storm does arrive And the lighthouse is sure extra special Burning the night sky it pours out its light And during this time the turbines struggle Turbines spin so fast it’s hard to control They still remain together, a strong form The lighthouse is proud, giving off its light Guiding all to be wary of this storm The wind turbines bring the lighthouse its light Beautiful pair is what they have become Both are needed during path of the storm If one falters they’re like worthless poems

    Enjoyed this read, my friend. Image and thoughts rolled in with the storm as well as in fair weather. I liked the finish too... my mind often falters, but the pencil is always willing !! lol
