A Stormy Night (Poem)


A Stormy night

The chariots of clouds are dark and dull

The city has pulled itself in a lull


The winds are taking a ferocious walk

There’s not a single soul to talk


First few raindrops struck like arrows

In hiding went the rabbits and sparrows


The scary thunder of an army of clouds

Children were anxious with fear and shouts


The swords of light made the night so bright

The power went out without giving a fight


In an hour there were streams of blood

No cars could move around in the flood


This attack from the sky was a huge surprise

Safety prayers for those with close ties

This battle should end by the crack of dawn

I’ve gotta feeling, I’ll need to redo my lawn…

– Adi Singla (19 Apr ’14)
