A Stormy Day

A normal sunny day begins Black clouds have just rolled in The sun will hide behind them Signs of a storm to come With winds so strong, they begin Churning the leaves about communication of all goes out Signs of a storm to come We rush for cover to protect Things we love and care for We beg and plead in total fear Signs of a storm are near It’s almost scary Day becomes night Flowers close, birds disappear Signs of a storm in sight The rain and wind are here We sit and wait till silence comes We open the door and see its destruction Signs of a storm gone by

Beautifully written poem. The imagery is simply flawless. I love the flow and the rhythm. And love the form of it in free verse because you certainly expressed it here with this remarkable poem. Well done!!
