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 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.
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.
