Storm in the Wilderness

A rough torrent of water cascades down the rocky cliff

crashing down out of sight 

behind wind whipped trees and red brown rock

dead branches snap and fall 

but do they make a sound

leaves and needles tremble beneath the onslaught

battered but proud

Above the sun burns 

at the ever encroaching clouds 

angry purple

thundering their rage 

crying their sorrow

as they tear at the land 

the sun retreating to the corner 

battle lost 

to weather the gales

again to shine upon the life

left after
