Patient Nature Waits - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

patience patience patience
nothing or few things
are as patient as nature waits

in multiple forms disguises predator prey games
thrill chill in life death dramas played out in seconds
in heart beat seconds every moment of all life death days

spanning the globe consistencies
rule this entire world all moments

in cold light early morn or falling darkening light traps
even puddles wait mundane as potential ambushes

careless cyclists
ride into winter possibly summer perils

puddles strike or cars
rush upon prey splashing victim cyclists

    Lots of visual images here. Nature a law unto itself spares no living thing comes to mind and as your poem reminds me it is only a matter of time. Almost a sinister scary feeling of nature lying in wait to deal to us....10 (Report) Reply
