Storm in the night

Storm

On a dark summer night

Wind blew with all its might

Madly swayed the brim of trees

upon them fluttered tiny leaves

 

The scandic sun had set today

Which is unusual  in a way

Because its that part of  the year

When the days never draw near

 

Fingers hit the keyboard

While heart seeks to unload

All it sensed and believed

as it yielded to its needs

 

Now it strives to sort

Those little precious thoughts

Which hold a promise

That morning would be a bliss

 

That sway of  those trees far away

Influences me in many ways

Though the wind is shut out

Its power asks without a doubt

 

What if i had no glasswall

And right on me it would haul

Where could i seek shelter

Where could i run for cover

 

Those trees bent and unbent

looked like so very spent

but they stood up their shoots

because deep down they had roots

 

If my roots anchor strong

the winds can do me no wrong

Life will sway little and more

But the storm will pass away for sure.
