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
