The Storm

the torrential rains
the strong winds
waters a flow
ocean shores, river banks
streams, creeks, ponds
waters a flow
trees and branches fall in submission
leaves in frenetic flight
the storm the storm the storm
the sounding sounding cry
the calm the calm the calm
this after night violet be the sky.
