A poem about the after thoughts of a storm





Dr. James E. Martin

March 5, 2011


The wind produced an eerie sound

As darkness filled the sky.

Quietness could no longer be found

As debris flew precariously by.


The stillness that had earlier prevailed

Was noticeably distant now.

Nerves of steel that were once detailed

Were frayed -- Does one wonder how?


It seemed as though no end was in sight.

Anxiety was everywhere displayed.

Would there ever be an end to the fright?

Would all, forever, be afraid?


Then, in an instant, the howl was abated

A calmness crept quietly over the land.

Where once there was fear, we now were elated.

We now would God's mercy understand.

Nice poem Jim!
We have much in common, we both retired for the USAF and we both earned our doctorates. The best of all is we are both Christians. Having all three in common is rare. I invite you to visit my site on Authors Den and check out the poems.

an eloquent expression of the power and purpose of all storms: to bring glory to God by spotlighting His mercy!
