How Sweet the Storm

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


How sweet the storm,

that electric release,

the darkness impeding,

a sunshine deceipt.

The bringer of havoc

and nature’s cold hand,

is but the forgiver,

of renewal in stand.

With sunshine the blessed,

and provider of growth,

is often in desert,

the harshness of stroke.

While storms are rejected,

a vengeance of hope,

are truly the givers of life,

growth and scope.

The darkness a reminder

of light that we seek,

the water the source of the life

that we speak.

The air so crisp and so fresh

fill the skies,

the rebirth and renewal

on earth we rely.

The storm is the lesson,

of change and revival,

and we must attune,

for our sake and survival.

      Good poem about a storm. We could certainly use some rain storms in Texas right now since we are experiencing a severe drought. As to the meaning of change...that is also very good. Rated up!

      Relating the storm with change and revival was very beautiful. But my personal favorite,The darkness a reminder of light that we seek.
