A Flash Poem for Thursday

Anguish prevailed
Thicken(ing) smoke
Rain began
Softly falling

People cheered
Fire extinguished
Smoke congealed
Harder rain
Flushed countryside

Sunshine appeared
Tender warmness
Soothing harassed

Only humanity considers lifes cycle with such detail but for the rest of nature it is just a struggle to survive the best way they can, whilst we sadly makes it difficult for even the rivers, seas, plants and animals to do so.

It's like what Einstein says: "Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better." Fine poem, Jim 💖

Yes, the coming of rain can cause anguish, but like Trump sometime, it will be over. And Sunshine appears, tender warmness...soothing harassed.

It can be hard to wait for a storm to break...

Nature, it can be beast and beauty. I still get a bit on edge when I hear the sound of rain pounding the vents. It sounds too much like Harvery.
