The Tempest - Poem by Chukwukere Timothy

As the day elapse

Darkness gradually enveloping the earth.

The peaceful sea and her household flowed.

Waves after waves,

Tides after tides.

The sea welcomed its family,

Promising a peaceful sleep.

All tasted the sweet cake of harmony,

As it has being before now.

The waves unites with the tides,

Together they pushed of the sea

Fear and challenges,

And to the shore, they abandoned them.

Beautiful is the sound!

Sound from the sea.

But, the sound lived as mayfly

Its couldn't last long.

The storm arose in anger,

Roaring as a lion.

The Tempest!

The tempest! !

The storm picked the sea,

tossing her against herself.

North against south.

South against north.

And the waves grew up as a mountain,

But collapsed as a house built on sands.

The sea cried, and cried like a wailing widow.

The tides collides against tides.

Thunder and lighting were all o'er

The sea grew in bitterness against its household.

Waters went to battle against waters

Waves against waves

Tides wrestled against tides.

The sound of the rumble were as roaring beast.

Darkness clothed the sea,

And its wear a cap of commotion

Peace went on exile.

Merry!

Merry! !

Bless God! Peace only went a few hours,

The sun appeared, and all died off as a feeble flame,

And vanished as smokes.

The light that accompanied the sun

sent away darkness

And the sea rested herself,

And smiled at the heavens.

The sun kissed her and she glows.

Her waves made peace

And the tides accepted.
