It came like a storm

It came like a storm
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
There came one
Only one that day
With swat and swing
Itself manifesting by winds
Though the day was calm and mild
It came sudden and unnoticed
It assaulted fortified place
Where intellect resides
It quivered through
Gray and white mass
Causing thunder and lightning
Though rain, snow and hail missing
Boiling over nastiness of thing,
Mutual hostility and ill will
It hit where one lives
Hence convulsed with rage
I lost sense of thinking
And also coolness of thing
And saw it gently resting
On classic stage of grief
I nailed it on its rising
And saw it subsiding- cause
Reason set a thing wise
Winds of anger may come plenty
But they have to abide
The world of reality sensibly…….

    One of the funniest sights in the world is angry people at acton though we do not get much amused. Temper of the right kind is not a flaw but anger arising out of wrong attitude to people and things need to be checked. This storm must be in recession and its fury must be dead by now.

    When anger comes sudden and uninvited, it is like a storm furious and can cause a lot of damage! If it is controlled through logical thinking, it will subside! I liked the lines;

    I nailed it on its rising
    And saw it subsiding; ................ Another great write Deepak! (Report) Reply

    A perfect expression of the disturbed state of mind as detailed in those words.
    But, yes
    Winds of anger may come plenty
    But they have to abide ..... very true (Report) Reply
