A bit of Poetry to Lull you to Sleep or to Entertain Your Imagination

storm writing prompt

Human structures, man-made wires

Symbolic street signs, store front banners

Vehicles that often break, windows that crack

A fire escape painted red

A child napping in their bed

Telephone poles, landscaped bushes

But where do you see the real power 

in this photograph?

That has the say as to whether the houses 

will stay standing?

Existing all around us 

ready to destroy or to nurture?

To tear apart, or to caress

To sooth, or to flood with dominance…

Nature has the power to lull us to sleep

with her soothing sounds of rain…

To frighten us with her electricity 

that streaks violently with no harness

across the sky that we breath
