EVE OF STORMS

EVE OF STORMS As I look towards the horizon, Without hesitation, But with determined yet Heartfelt trepidation, And see a distant angry Storm forging forth Its spluttering vicious curvaceous Fearful advance holds my gaze With historical ageless Heartfelt emotions, That sink and dive, And furl and curl, Knowing no one may survive! Poseidon and Neptune take centre stage, And Eve of storms unleashes wrath, Tempts oceans rage! The beginning of time Is about to meet Mythology Eternity about to clash With oceans and Astrology The mystical ocean gods, Meet Eve, the beginning of human Temptation, against all odds! The reptile has achieved Its evil aim and intent, Causing chaos and fear Alone is it’s content. The gods call upon God our Maker To drown the serpent tormentor, And quell this tidal wave Ten storeys tall, About to wipe out all, This massive water wall! Eve of Storms has angered God She had already lost the keys To Paradise, now interferes With Poseidon and Neptune, The gods of seas, God the omnipresent and the Only truth sends Eve back to Earth, Is Eve of Storms, Fiction, or myth people say, But to this day Whilst looking up At starlit skies We are no more the wise!

Beautiful Imagery. In our holy book, it was Adam who first tasted the fruit. And he was tempted by Satan

I'm not sure that history has recorded that whole story right. I think adam must bear some of that blame. Enjoyed.

Mthology both Roman and Greek have always fascinated me, but I think every country's history has ancient mythology including Norway's History which is totally fascinating. Keep well and safe my dear soul sister, blessings, and hugs, Jennifer.

Hi Gordon, Hope you are keeping well, is Scotland have a resurgence of this awful pandemic - I wish it would go drown itself ! South Africa is now on level 2 one away from the last round, but we must still be careful, wear masks and self distance. Glad you enjoyed my poem my friend. Blessings and hugs, Jennifer.

Hi Lindsay, every country seems to be in some kind of a struggle and turmoil with governments, presidents or Prime Ministers. Socialist rule I think will be the order of the day in the not too distant future. Thank-you Lindsay, Blessings Jennifer.

I love your word pairings: "vicious curvaceous", "furl and curl", "causing chaos". Your intersection of mythological references, powerful sea tempests and the fall in the garden is brilliant and so effective at painting a picture of an impending catastrophe. Yet God is omnipresent (love that word!) and faith in him is all we have to hold on to. Glorious writing, my friend - a fave. Hugs ~ John

"Evil aim and intent, causing chaos and fear" So true. I wish it weren't so. It is such a comforting thought knowing that God is over all- and in control. Your thoughts always touch my heart in someway. This is so beautifully written and presented my dear friend. Hugs, Brandy

Hi Jennifer, this is such a creatively excellent write from your golden pen. Such vividly strong pictures your words do paint on the canvas of the mind. The battle comes within the storm, it is ever the same. You build up the tension within the storm. This has to be a fav. Have a wonderful Thursday. Hugs....Mike. XX

I thought it apt that they should be in conflict - biblical history, and mythological History . Thanks for a great comment Michelle. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer

What a stunning deep dive into classic mythology, there Jennifer... And I see that his storm tirade is all my fault!! (Just like everything in my house -- all my fault!!). ~ Gershon Culp Able

Thank-you Gershon for a stunning comment but confused, how is it your fault, as for everything in the house being your fault, I think you would have many husbands that would sympathize with you! Blessings and hugs Jennifer.
