Poet Bio

In the eye of the storm brave hearts embrace
Fears stirring confusion in her turbulence
We recollect our mangled existence
To move forward with growing resilience

In her eye, the look of clarity
Safe in her blink of surety
In the distance hurricane winds
Twirl and twist, play games with our minds

In the face of such overbearing power
The vortex rising higher than a tower
Knees buckle and weaken as we cower
The will to live tested in a baptism of fire

Tempers flare as lightning signals life and death
The battle of the heavens descends to earth
I walk on deadly ground
Life is a landmine field

Listening for the chirp of the sparrow
For signs of life through the cold shower
We plead for her forgiveness
And shelter in the ominous stillness

Am I a fool for thinking, ‘Yes, it can be done
Without even touching a single one
Yes it’s harder than dodging a bullet
Rain is but water?’

Yet still we stand in the pool of teardrops
The cumulonimbus brewing boulders
I’m yet to see the rainbow,
The storm is still not over
