Pounds out wrath relentlessly against all in her path.
Once playful waves now roll and roar
To ceaselessly assault the silent shore.
Sullen clouds, like angry hornets, swarm
From out their azure nest
To sting both earth and sea alike
With pummeling, punishing bites.
Lightning shards, as from a giant broken light,
Shatter across the darkening horizon,
While the sun scurries away to hide his golden face
From the fierceness and the fury of the storm.
Thunder shouts with a savage voice
Bass rumblings of his rage,
In tandem with the wailing wind,
Let loose from God’s strong hand.
The men at sea in rain-soaked yellow slickers
Attempt to steer their pitching vessels home,
Before their lives be taken as a forfeit
To appease the rising passion of the gale.
Then suddenly the tempest’s put to rest
By the One who calms the wildness of the waters,
And God brushstrokes across the easel of the heavens
The rainbow of His everlasting promise.
