thunder clouds

thunder clouds

as darkness descends

surrounding me

enveloping my heart

turning the world inside out

the sound is deafening 

like a war zone of nature

beating wind against the sky

turning shapes into nightmares

may all this be passing

as we dream of a new world

Raised by Wolves

take shelter from the gathering storm

we wait for it to pass

but we know in our hearts

fear prevails

as our surroundings darken

a path is found within

to lead us away to safety

what remains 

cannot be unbroken

like a child

fragile to begin with

then as strength returns

so shall we find in ourselves

the depth of courage

against disparity 

and awaken a truth

a burden of which we carry

Sparrow

sparrow fly away home

of all life’s desires

be the one

who holds dear

what life leaves behind for us

a shining star

in the vast cosmos

when all love is lost

be the spark

to reunite the two halves

bring back all light

banish the darkness

believe in oneself 

a guiding force of nature
