Nature’s Great Fury

 

Careful and bold they approach the darkness,

Eager to learn the secret of her strength.

As she tosses about masses of man’s greatness,

Destroying lives at will, yet caring so little.

One will lie flat while another stands firm,

Seems justice is served but to whom did deserve?

Lives forever in instances change and never reborn,

Yet bravely they face her unstoppable rage.

Manmade hulks of steel and glass

Clinging to earth while her wildness rages past.

Gathering secrets in small bits and parts

Studied to find knowledge for lives they could save.

Bravely facing the throat of the beast

Looking deeply into the eyes as she blasts

All her rage unleashed so quickly she’s gone

Destruction her wake, now sun does shine upon her work.

Blinking they now wake to a new surreal world.

Those who fled and chased work hand now in hand

So maybe they can learn how better to stand

When next time Nature in her fullest evil

Unleashes the winds of fury upon all.

 

Inspired by the Discovery TV show “Storm Chasers” and dedicated to all who have lost loved ones or property due to tornadoes and violent storms.

Watching the news and its coverage of these terrible events stuns me with the power a tornado can unleash. Families torn apart, towns eviscerated, and unknown futures for all involved. Your poem sets the tone well as you focus on the people who study these events with courage and curiosity. Perhaps someday science will discover ways of alarming all who sit in the path of one of these destructive forces of nature.

I enjoyed this poem very much.

This poem has a strong beginning. Glad I read it. Liked the way you worded the verses below:

Man made hulks of steel and glass
Bravely facing the throat of the beast

A strong part of man's psyche is his realization that he is not in control. This is a wonderful piece.

Wow this is an incredible write. Every line makes powerful images erupt, and at the same time a feeling and vision of sorrow.
This poem has a wonderful flow and a great rhythm. Awesome job.
