Poetry comes the way today!


The Storm

There is this proverbial calm before the storm!
This oppressive premonition, that something huge will roll towards you.
Still undefined but unstoppable.
Restlessness and fear seize my body.
The future is too uncertain.
But it’s too late to run away.

I freeze for quite a while.
Billions of thoughts pave their way through my head.
All at the same time.
A thunder in the distance.
I feel the wind is getting stronger.
I stand firm.
What should I do?

It will get massive, I’m sure of that.
I walk a little and look into the distance.
Quite far away.
The sky is darkening.
But there, oh see, suddenly for a second, it becomes very bright.
A flash of lightning illuminates this and my world.
Wonderful and threatening at the same time.
A deep rumble heralded this poignant spectacle.

I go a little further.
I’m getting calmer.
There is life out there.
And there is life in me, that is
just raging inside.
Just as it is before my eyes.

A drop of water on my forehead.
Another one on my nose.
I feel it, there is a connection.
Now Heaven opens its gates uncontrollably.
Everything around me is flooding.
I’m soaking wet within seconds.
I don’t mind, I do not today.

I feel, I really feel.
I am one with nature.
She lives, she challenges me.
She calmed me down, finally.

It’s there and it’s real.
I am there and I am alive.
I rave, I’m loud, I can be loud.
I get quiet
I’m very calm.
And I will find peace.


I just wrote this, and I should this do fare more often again.  And some day, I do a book of poems,  for everybody to read. Well, everybody who has the affinity, too. That would be a dream come true. And I dream today, for a better world, for kindness,  for the purity of soul and for love.
