Night Storm
Night Storm is heralded by a thunderous roar.
Consort so vile is the torrent rain downpour.
Lightening startles in torrid lashes.
Intricate pattern of frolicking slashes.
Southernmost winds whip in zealous glee,
and callously strip leaves from graceful magnolia tree.
Suddenly an eerie silence prevails.
Wind speaks in whispers, rather than wails.
Harken the rumble of a freight train near.
That sound above all others, instiller of fear.
Minutes pass like eras as my fate I await.
Will I be spared, or face judgement this date?
Train lumbers by at a maddening pace.
Heart pounds in fear as body quakes.
Hands humbly pressed together and lips moving in prayer,
asking God's grace that my life be spared.
Reverently, I give thanks as the Night Storm moves toward the east.
Now I offer prayers for those still in the path of the beast.
Author's Notes:
Remembrances of some of the 'super storms' we have had here,
and in honor of those who have suffered in recent storms.

A powerful fast paced description of a truly physically and emotionally riveting experience. The pace of it was perfect, well penned.

A destructive thing, a storm.  But a constructive thing, your poem.  Perceptive and caring words.  Yes, storms have hurled people into the abyss of suffering -- and worse...  May God listen to your heartfelt prayers.  --David

A frightening yet beautiful thing -- Nature -- and this is so beautifully expressive and full of colour Linda -- wonderfully penned --
