Cloudburst. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Shouldering one against the other
Mushrooms of clouds fail to discover
That boisterous behaviour ends in clash
Erupts in sleet that stings in passing.

In file they approach this winter's day
And slide into close tight band of gray.
Skudding huge bulk over wind-chased blue
Cloud patterns split the sky's mood in two.

Tomorrow may choose to unskirt this storm,
But for now hailstorm javelins must be borne.

    I particularly enjoyed your 'shouldering' and the 'mushrooms' of clouds - great metaphors and the way you have personalized these wonder's of the natural world as if they were players in an epic drama or even a football match. Your final couplet confuses though. I've never heard of 'hailey javelins'? Not that it matters. The poem works a treat. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
