Storms of the West

Storms of the West

A Poem by P.H. Carver

 Give me your worst,

A deadly wreath,

Till I may burst,

Show me those teeth.


 What lies beneath,

That sacred fury,

Soon to unleash,

Make the cursed scurry.


 Hollow me out,

Storms of the west,

Make me new,

And destroy the rest,

I beg to you.


 Pave a new way,

Into nature you wove,

Breath new life,

This forgotten grove.


 “Nay,” says the man,

Weary of change,

“Get out of here,

Go away,

You wretched storms!

Leave us alone,

us loners out here,

we prefer the same way,

can you not hear?”


 But the storms of the west,

Ignored the man without change,

And the place we call home,

Will never be the same.

Intense, a fight with one's inner self to accept that change. I love how deep you went into this and the imagery is brilliant.


"Pave a new way,
Into nature you wove,
Breath new life,
This forgotten grove."

This stanza was like a beautiful hymn sung a summer's evening to me.

It left me a very strong impression because of the deadly storms.
But the storms of the west,
Ignored the man without change,
And the place we call home,
Will never be the same.
These lines are great! Storms always bring damage to people's houses and can't never be restored that easily. Luckily, we have never experienced such misfortunes as we are away from any bodies of water. I hope people too will not have such unlucky times.

Many storms in a life. Need to face them and learn to be stronger. I like the questions raised from this poem. A very strong ending to a outstanding poem.

I interpret it as our inner struggle with accepting change. We have moments in which we encourage it and desire it. Then we also have moments in which we want none of it. But in the end we don't decide if it comes or not. We only decide how we deal with it.

I enjoyed it. Well done.

A representation of the enormous changes we have been going through in recent experience. It is as much a welcome change as it is an enigmatic riddle that we have to solve. The jury is still out. Nice write!
