Nature's veil


Nature, thy double-edged sword,
The serene and peaceful hallowed fjord,
Teeming with life and everlasting light,
That lasts well into the dark of night,
Yet elsewhere a chaotic storm may churn,
Oh how the deadly lightning does urn,
To strike the path of least resistance,
Lets say, a person for instance,
Nature's biting edge may wreak total destruction,
While its dulled edge heals in conjunction,
The souls forever flayed by it's masked veils,
From whom come nature's true tales.

    Nature's biting edge may wreak total destruction,

    While it's dulled edge heals in conjunction,

    The souls forever flayed by it's masked veils,

    I like how you compared nature's struggle with the struggle of man in this poem.
    Well done.
