Storm Clouds

Storms are brewing
Dark clouds above
The light has faded
In the darkness we cower
The blue skies recede
Life’s cool breeze of calm
A distant memory
Succumbs to its power

Once light shone above
Now dark and forbidding
Rough winds blow and howl
Blind every new dawn
The summer long over
Its shoots withered and dead
The dark night of winter
Acceptance, the norm
