Deluge Poem by Nancy Butterworth


Rating: 5.0

The sky, it was not subtle
A sudden inky black
When the lightening crackled
And pulled the curtain back
Nothing else was visible
A deluge from a dream
Nature bared abundant breasts
And filled each lake and stream
And though they feared the melee
Exploding ‘cross the sky
They danced within her essence
A blessing from on high

I can just absorb myself into this poem and fade away. Such beautiful imagery. Such captivation of thought, emotions and imagination. Your style of writing is something I aspire towards. Thank you.

Nature reestablishes it's supremacy and inculcates dread in the minds of human beings periodically to prove that in spite of high edge technologies, scientific achievements etc giving him undue pride, human is subordinate to nature. Liked the spiritual aspect. Thanks for sharing.10+++

Thank you so much for your comment. I love the rain and wind but one must be careful for what one wishes.
