Rains Of Peace

The bright, robust sun
and the dark clouds
are in the thick of fray.
Nobody can guess
who will win the fight.

The brawl reached its climax
with a wreak of vengeance
the nimbus clouds
engulfed the radiant sun.

A streak of lightning
forked across the sky,
heavy rumbling thunder
pouring on the earth
the rains of peace!

    I love the picture it brought to mind because the poem played a short story inside. Great Poem.

    Koyel,
    Please forgive my lack of professional courtesy in not commenting on your poems sooner. I too enjoyed RAINS OF PEACE. I liked the idea of putting both the Sun and Clouds into the same ring, and letting them go at it! This time the clouds won!
    I'll be watching for the re-match!

    your friend
    Mike

    Wow! This is one is really a good one. The persona here is like almost celebrating the triumph of its desire. A 10 for this one.

    Though the theme looks a simple one, you managed, with your imagination to make it a symbolic and meaningful. Two supposed to be enemies (clouds and sun) in the end they mix their energy to produce something (rain) positive (peace) .
    I give it a 9+, thanks to your amazing method to paint and energise your message.
    (I am also glad that I am using an abundance of imagination in my own poems) .

    A soothing rainscape of peace after that war in the sky. Your

    You personalize the elements of sun and cloud with originality and style in this fine poem. A metaphor for something more personal, perhaps? love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
