A Date with the Doomed Sky

A Poem By Wings of Eternity // 6/28/2015

A bitter wind blows its warning breath,
thunder rolls in angry protest,
I taste the dread; the tempest that is to come.
It feels like a meeting,
a date if you will, with the doomed sky.
Clouds suddenly are torn asunder,
grey visages weeping,
keeping unsteady time with their tears.
Lightning strikes and all is hushed;
for a moment, time stands still.
The clouds begin weeping again,
a silent lament to the inevitable,
waiting for the sun to once again
dry their tears.

I found your wording so vivid;like I was right there having a date with the doomed sky. I love the last four lines and the ideas that they hold and its just beautiful.

Goodbye? Oh no, please. Can’t we just go back to page one and start all over again?” – Winnie The Pooh

Thanks Maddi!

Thanks so much Maddi for your sweet words! I am thrilled that you liked it :) I have these little poems written all over the place and when I rediscovered this one, I decided to post it. Blessings to you!

"Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity." 1 Timothy 4:12


This is very good! Just came across this. (I'm fairly new to the site, and am slowly reading through the literature that has been posted here in the past.) I also have an interest in the Holocaust & Jewish history, as my great-grandparents were French Jews who left France (possibly due to persecution) and came to America in probably the early 1900's. So, anyways, I am technically a Christian ethnic Jew (partly, anyways), and this type of writing is particularly fascinating to me. Again, great job!
