Peace and happiness at last

The tumultuous whirlwinds had now ceased
The roaring, nettlesome sounds have dried away
The tide is now silent
The clatters and jangles,
now dead, they are.
Far and wide, the drumming sounds, ululations...
For the happiness, peace and calamity, found again
All is being born again.

The sky is blue
The dark-dark, huge, cumbersome and petrifying clouds
Have faded away
And now, white clouds are to be seen hither and thither
In the blue sky-scape, congregating
For the new rain of the new
the new downpour of joy and peace of nature.

With my hands, 
I rubbed away the hot tears, at last
With a smile, i looked out
The thudding of my heart, had stopped, but gone
Relieved i felt, for the tempests, had flied away
I yawned, stretching my arms
Bad times, had reached their edges
At last.

The birds fluttered and warbled
Their sounds anew
Tickling my fancy
The swiping of the trees
buzzed with the cool breeze
and then, the sun showed up
with new lively alight, and 
with the moon
they all smiled cutely.

All got in full swing
For the peace, and happiness had at last been restored
I danced along with the birds, soft wind and the trees
Dancing, to their tune
And with all the peace and happiness
Smiled back to the jolly sun and the moon.

    This is a poem about peace of mind or the peace of humanity and nature after times of sadness, times of persistent troubles had come to an end. it combines the celebrations of nature like the trees and the the sun with that of humanity. It depicts the idea that nature alone will not be in a good state if humanity is not living in an atmosphere of peace and humen themselves can not live in peace if nature is not in the state of goodness. The poem is broad and have got more than this. Enjoy!!!!
