Storm - poetry

Storm



Storm has passed , leaving behind massive destruction
We're already prepared to start the construction
The winds stirred up an enormous pile of dust
Which has shaken our unshakable trust Standing in the middle of a big mess Noticing we're left behind with much less Some things will be easy to repair
Others will need more of our care
Now that the dark clouds have moved on The rain drops are also long gone
There's room again for the sun
And much that needs to be done
A heavy weight dissolves
And Happiness evolves
No need to feel bad
About being sad
It just needs time
Retrieving prime
It's okay
Simply stay
Just wait
For fate
Cope
Hope

I like the way the poem works both in a literal way, but also as a metaphor for any change in life. So often changes can seem like they destroy the old way of life, when often they are needed to clear the way for better things.

Obviously, a hurricane isn't quite the same, as the destruction usually leaves people devastated. But then again, so do changes in relationships etc. It makes me wonder if all these challenges, big or small, aren't just opportunities for growth.

Thanks for sharing your thought-provoking poem.

P.s. I also like the way you've formatted it. It kinda shows the way a storm can fade from its peak.

I loved this poem. It's simple and yet powerful. I loved the imagery and the message behind it. I particularly the pace you set and the way it seems to slow down, even as your words are more soothing at the end.
"...Just wait
For fate
Cope
Hope"

The shape of the poem looked like a tornado upon first viewing. :) I read the verses with fascination as you tried to make it work towards the bottom with less words. Excellent!

Which has shaken our unshakable trust

Nice 'sh' sound, like the wind in a storm.
