Disturbance

 

 

Sunrays filters through

Early mist and

Colours a white rose with rainbow hues.

Dewdrops sparkle,

Composing bell-like resonance

In the morning air.

Clouds pass,

Measuring the time.

 

A lightning bolt

Sparks electric shockwaves

And the thunderclap

Flattens the grass.

 

Dark vapours

Amass,

Bringing rain and hail

Down

On the unsuspecting

Still life.

 

Later

The rain peters out

Evening sun

Sends its last

Kisses.

But there’s no response:

 

Teardrops made

The perfect rosebud

Wilt.
