The Sound Of Nature - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

I begged the sky to hold off
But it answered me with such a sound,
The clouds raised their puffy lids
And tears came tumbling down...

(By surprise) cursed thunder first
Followed by a quieter prayer,
Then, with hesitation wept,
The grieved windows of the spheres...

I nodded and descended,
So familiar was the plea
That no rejoinder I made
And Let the damp weather be...

I, too, knew that the darkness
Was merely a passageway
Beguiling travelers of truth
Through steps of uncertainty...

    The beauty of nature
    Always mystifies man
    Its sound its site
    Makes us forever in bliss
    At times we're scared
    At its energy raw
    But the beauty it gives
    Makes us sigh in bliss

    Beautiful poem...bravo...10++++

    How uncertain our steps are in the dark.
    A wonderfully expressed cleansing poem
    of nature and man.
