The Calm Storm

The calm storm blows
As sailors cringe and the sail flows
As sharp waves dance and the tide grows
The calm storm blows.

As light diminishes
And black darkness grows
As day turns to night
And ocean battles sky
The calm storm blows.

As clouds chase up high
And raging waves cry
As the world spins
And havoc begins
The calm storm blows.

As lost birds search for port
And the screeching wind howls
As boats break
And time slows
The calm storm blows.

And through all the chaos,
The slashing waves
And crashing noise
There is a calm—as sound and sight drone
To stillness and silence.

And the calm storm blows.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
