Orchestra of Fear - Sept. 7, 2021


splinters of lightning

timpani drums backed by

wind instruments in crescendo


when you write a poem every day

ominous observations like this

form a promising beginning


the tension that causes trees

to sway and leaves to turn away

is the perfect orchestra of fear


in this morning’s case a monster rainstorm


the only trouble might be

if the conductor alters his approach

or shifts to a kinder melody


then good luck coming up

with a special rejoinder to

satisfy all the thirsty readers


disappointed that this poem

didn’t turn illegible

and get washed away
