Many waters cannot quench LOVE, Neither can the floods drown it.  Song of Solomon 8:7

As the winds breathe heavily darkened within fury Moaning filled with clouds begins speaking Through stormy turbulent assaults with waves that kill A ballad is blown away like feathers from angels wings Rain falling heavily driven by natures unyielding force Trees bend to salute the host's almighty anger Hurricane's orchestra romancing chaos turns Striking tempest flashing lightening power of creation speaks Rumbling voices roaring echoes carried from the heaven's The action and power of love both earthly and heavenly Crackling forks sparking separating inside an air like music dawns Floods flow down a neck chain around the mountain's face Rushing to an ocean's source where it's kissed by the salt of grace Washed in a seabed finding her resting place safe inside an oyster Enormous waves sad and monotonous, which eventually dies A collaborated poem Anne-Lise Andresen and Liam Mc Daid 14.09. 2017 tristich unrhymed Copyright © All Rights Reserved
