Storm - Poem by cecil hickman

From the mountaintops down thru valleys.
Excited, full of nature’s fury.
Flowing from west to east.
Like breath from a giant beast.
Whirling, -
Whipping - all- To and fro.
I feel helpless.
And completely amazed.
With this fabulous creature.
Which must be crazed.
Hear the whistle.
Listen to the wail.
A 60 - mile per hour - gale.

    I like the lines about feeling helpless but amazed by the storm. I know during our storms here I try to enjoy the power of the storms, but I too feel helpless at times during them. I am thankful for the calm times after some huge storms with those high winds. Good poem. Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report)Reply

    I too, love storms, excellent imagry, very intense It reminds me of when I was a little girl, sitting in the kitchen watching my grand-father looking out the window and commenting on the lightening storm. That was the first thing that came to mind. Thankyou, nice memory reminder from this excellent poem----------a true picture of a storm, well done---Melvina (Report)Reply

    I love the brevity, it reminds me of Richard Brautigan. I love storms
    so the title drew me in.
