Fronds of palm

striking the window

so hard with their arms

The heaviness of thumping

now reaching its crescendo

-the autumn’s sudden storm


These are the gifts of the wild

in my prayer that was entailing

the hidden agonies of that child

reverberating emotions wailing


                                 *    *    *

The next morning after the storm

the ground is finely adorned with

fallen gems in color transformed


The calmness and the myths of

the aftermath are metaphors

for hidden seeds for true love

as that child is settled afore


                                              *   *   *

While the storms rage

felines stay alert yet

calm, and engaged

in the silhouette


mirroring their

love within

                                             *   *   *

There are many metaphors around us. I often reflect and contemplate our daily phenomena for a deeper understanding of their backgrounds. We, humans, are now so limited, but animals with free senses of the wild know the heart of our beings much better. For this, I adore and trust them very much.
