A Sudden Storm Poem by asma bahrainwala

A Sudden Storm

Rating: 5.0

The blinding light
Of the brightest ever sun
Suddenly shrouded
By a thick pall of impenetrable darkness.

A strange silence engulfs.

A sudden chill creeps in;
The wind begins to blow
Forming a dense screen of dust.

The wind gains momentum.

It sucks the dry leaves
Up towards the sky,
A greedy funnel forms;
The trees sashay to the rhythm.

The wind begins to howl.

A roaring thunder roars,
Alarms the mighty earth,
Rips it off its grave silence,
And shoves it into utter chaos.

A frightening darkness befalls.

Now, I can hear the sky
Shrieking with pain;
Thunder-bolt and lightening,
Now it breaks into rain.

A heavenly downpour.

The anger subsides;
Tears begin to flow;
Nature reconciles.

A cool breeze gently blows.

A curious sun peeps,
Spreading a bright smile;
Darkness evaporates.

The landscape dazzles again.

This is really superb descriptive writing; I'm not surprised it has got so many '10s'.
