Whispers in the Storm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A graceful hand reaches down

cups falling raindrops

lifts sunken frowns.

 

Amidst life's gentle rumble,

the earth's silent tremble,

a bird gently flutters,

soaring to Eden.

 

Carrying with it a silent whisper,

to one Most Graceful,

in dire need of comfort,

a message, a soft cry laced,

embellished with gentle tears.

 

A sudden gust of wind, an uplifting breeze,

an elated spirit meanders, then glides with ease,

that cooling breath so tranquil,

a much sought soothing answer,

the raging furnace, a heavy heart, it does appease.

 

Staring upon a new horizon,

Over the once turbulent seas,

Rests a calm, serene reflection,

a delicate, ornate, overarching frieze.

Dense skies displaced, beneath it a heartwarming complexion,

a lukewarm blush, a clear depiction,

of an oft-giving Lord's deep affection,

subtle signs, bearing no imperfection.
