Y... Elegant Violence


After five days of gloom
and dark monsoon,
sparks of colour in the sunrise
betray an enticing pause in the season

Strong winds still stand
and sweep up white chunks of water
that jump out of the sea
in violent bouts of elegance

    How can nature betrays nature, sunrise backstabbing monsoon? how about monsoon steal from sunshine? ? ....hmmm i dont know but i may say the nature having different moods...just like us, sunny smile and gloomy feelings...and the emotions carry different strength...like us sometimes action followed but what we feel, and the violence of nature expressing what happen to the world...we may keep all in ourself but nature keep all with us...why? because we in nature contentment... we need to see nature act as our behavior..maybe it's work :) because it just the rule of nature, and written by God's hand _Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
