A Poem by Nostalgicc

Spontaneous write.


No one expected the forecaster

would predict a last minute storm.

He speaks, being 

controlled by the hand of an 

executive, a perfectionist, 

and looks ahead- a deer

struck by lightening, still, its fall

imminent and pronounced. I look

too and wonder whether he spent 

much time fixing the blemish of

his tie, the bulge of his coat,

if he smoothed the fabric down,

felt the stiffness of his pants.

We are the results of insidious evolution. 

He points to the 

boisterous grey mass boiling and

bubbling and says it will begin

tonight. I don’t care much if

the windows remain open,

a flutter of a breeze parting the

beautiful silence. The screen

trembles as if trapped in a whisper

and the forecaster reverts to the shine

of tomorrow, a bulbous sun that

will appear, come morning.


Leaving behind the deluge

that will seal today’s end.

I like the swirling of this, it's evocative without self-importance. The reader is lost in the subject matter and the surprises.

It is a bit on the surrealist side though and not the easiest train of thought to follow.

It has good tension, and a decent start and end.

Full of fantastic imagery and emanating the power and frustration of the storm you describe - nicely done.

This feels just like a storm - tense and angry (almost), but calming at the same time. Love this line 'The screen/trembles as if trapped in a whisper.' Great write!

East coast

Been here since 2007. 20. East Coast. I dig ambient soundscape music and often write while listening to Boards of Canada or Aphex Twin. Don't be afraid to offer serious constructive criticism, .. more..
