Assurity After Storms

Sea of searching tore hope without explanation Crucified crests cascaded, crazed static fall crashing Thrown spontaneous needs, unclean situations Wayward waltz of flotsam incongruity, faith attacking Tossed by tumult of quick duty drifters expected Wanton women sought whimsy single wave provided Crudest crass antics satisfied, longevity rejected Your initial impression of love soured, ineptly guided Passing storms glinted possibilitiy, gold molten Tides' turn triggered stability, a precious daughter born Island high respite bleached prior sin, forgotten Barbaric baby mother forced ongoing warranted scorn Struggle to maintain safety, sentry shipwrecked Shattered bow released soul mate satiate foreseeable Tormented tiny child splintered fragile prospect Cuts met welted wounds, salt sterile from recent evils Collapse on a beach of relief, I'm your purest cove Bloodied hands bandaged, nurtured with tender heed Mollusc polished particles to resume trust's trove Immortal vessel promise predicts turgid tides recede 24th October 2020 Written for Contest: After The Hurricane Sponsor: Craig Cornish picture to take inspiration from is 'After The Hurricane, Bahamas', painted by Winslow Homer

The storm after the hurricane is a match for its instigator. Wow! ~ Gershon

Indeed!... I suppose the size of a storm psychologically speaking, impacts only as much as we allow...

Another blinder Sigrid, homers classic painting stark as it is, cannot portray the actual spectacle, but you bring it to life in such poetic hallucinogenic surreality, got lost in this storm myself, yet was in no hurry to escape, brilliant! good luck in the contest, cheers David.

Well this one is full of emotion hidden behind metaphors.. Great choice of words here, and as always great rhyme and flow..
