leaving a dowry of destruction

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

leaving a dowry of destruction

 

coward clouds retreat

roaring winds elope in fear

marriage of a storm

thank you, Paul.

A striking metaphor eloquently framed.
Not sure if this is senryu or haiku; do know it's excellent.

The weather inclement or otherwise, is no respecter of class, creed, carpenter or King, dimiss its power at your peril!

Creative and thoughtful brevity Jacob!

thank you for your kind review, Tom.

yes, there are certain
circumstances that only
promise destruction...
wise not to chose those paths...
hard enough to endure when
nature occurs.

Let's hope any more weddings are held at sea.

The perfect storm. Imperfectly, unfeelingly destroying. Your strong words condemn the monstrous marriage of volatile elements- and hopefully speed them back to hell. Kudos!

Marriages of storms give birth to raw materials for us the poets....the bittersweet circle of life....lovely sad song of words and thoughts dear Jacob.

Filled with descriptive metaphors that tell the tale of a raging storm that swept in wrecking havoc and then moved on leaving destruction that is unimaginable. Lovely choice of words and images Jacob.
