Great Sullen Wind

A breeze that once lay cool in morn,
is face of death as dark was born.
On pebbled beach and under guise,
from sea to shore destroyed broad wise.

Great sullen wind awoke this night
and made old oak tree tremble fright.
Though might in years, he stood and shook
for death wind sought and life it took.

In churches huddled in the mass
we prayed the Lord would let it pass
and so He did and had it done
so weathered storms would see the sun.

Wow!!! Celeste. What a picture you paint here. It is amazing how things change and a gentle breeze can gather power to be come a raging storm that will eventually pass as we weather the storm. Great writing here. Thank you for sharing. lainie

Even storms serve a purpose. People find faith when life becomes chaotic in the face of a storm. God Bless. Vince
