What Is Thunder?


What is thunder, but a noise?
Perhaps a roar of godly wrath
Or the echoes of uncertain laugh
That come from little-known joys

What is thunder, but a sound?
Product of dark, depressing cloud
From sky to earth it roars so loud
But God is nowhere to be found

That it's natural, many have no doubt
But I would like to hope it's more
Like Heaven and Hell locked in war
And Earth means nothing in the bout

    Ancients had God's of thunder and God's of lightning, keeping them separated.
    No one dies of thunder unless it is out of fear.
    No one has time to fear death when struck by ligjtning.
    In Florida they have heat lightning and thunder on a bright blue day with no clouds.
    But a war between heaven and hell all takes place within our lives
    The fury may be silent but the reverbrations can be hell. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
