The Unfairness Of Angels
Email Poem | Today's Poetry
Stinging nettles:

Gazing upon a soft turquoise sunset

Symmetry at it's purest

Flat surface of blue

Ending in a golden cave

Of brilliant orange

Beautiful, peaceful

Until the tsunami came

High up in the mountains

Soft snow covers the ferns

Scented aroma of pine

Carried in a fresh rasping breeze

Sapphire skies and the rays of white

Make everything look so new

Until the avalanche came

The clouds hang lower here

Over the grasslands of the Midwest

Yellow brush strokes across the prairies

Flat and endless, timeless and poignant

The wind picks up humid and dry

The peace before the storm

Then tornado came

The beeping horns of cars

The muffled noise of a million conversations

The abundance of life within such efficacy

off the Pacific coast of Tohoku

Can the distant sights of auburn mountains

And boats of today's catch be so apocalyptic

When the earthquake came

The painful side of nature

Cruel yet so beautiful

Before life itself so old and ancient

Unbeatable unrewarding yet beautiful

Always so beautiful

Like a small cluster of stinging nettles

Causing us pain with a mere touch
