Calm Before the Storm

All is calm in this frozen land of mine.
Not an icicle out of place, how stunning.
It all is too perfect, it must be a sign.
Of the storm of chaos that is coming.

As the snowflakes start to fall,
I feel a chill that rattles my bones.
A warning from the God above all,
Sitting on his frozen throne.

A warning of the storm to come
One that will consume us all.
Unless we choose to see the sun
Despite this icy wall.


The author's comments:

I was inspired to write a poem about nature after reading some of Emily Bronte's poems.  My favorite, "Shall earth no more inspire thee" is a beautiful poem about the peacefulness and beauty of nature.  I hope that by reading my poem, people will be inspired by the beauty and the awe of nature and how it connects to our lives.
