Force Majeure

Force Majeure

A Poem by Mrudula Rani

Ululating gale,
Impelled through concrete jungle
Chivying ghosts of erstwhile.

Thank you very much.
Small in stature but big when and where it matters most methinks.. a force to be either wary, or proud of.... maybe.... you are just too good at this game... teach me more..

...........but I do, ya see :)
Those concrete jungles can jingle mightily in our minds and bring unfavorable past to the forefront of heartaches. Those ghosts can annoy the daylights out of us. We won't know peace like we should. Marvelous brevity.

You are very welcome.
Sorry I haven't reviewed you in a while. I clicked on your links, but could not reach your stuff. But now I'm here! *yippee!* I cannot resist comparing this poem to the one I wrote recently about a wild storm in the wilderness. It's so fun to compare your "city" point of view to my rustic one! The photo is upside down, I think!?!? But one can still see the ominous skies & the words "gale" & "ghosts" are most reflected in this photo. Who can't help but love your love of vocabulary!?!?! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Your vocabulary is a writer's feast, Mrudula! I always learn new words when I visit your page. I was drawn to this one by the title-- it reminded me of someone and the wisdom they shared with me at one time, so I did bring a little baggage to the reading. But, I like that. I like when I encounter things that make me incorporate what I already know into some new facet or information.

I love the word 'chivying' here, as well. It's such a fun word and makes the storm itself feel playful. I love whatever ways character can be injected into the landscape through words like that. Feels like you captured a moment here. And gave it a long-life through recording it into a word photo.

I really enjoyed this. Great photo, too!

Strange how time and circumstance negates whispers quiet, solemn and slight. Helps or makes us realise exactly what peace means. Perhaps?

Many thanks Emmajoy, for sharing your exquisite and keen thought.
Sort of woke this morning to this.
Strange gale force wind that really wasn't expected.
Mind you, I suppose when the earthquake hits, you aren't expecting it either.
