Stormy Weather

Growling, howling, prowling,

tugging, tearing, ripping.

Whipping, waves; wild sea horses.

Bending the beeches,

twisting the pines.

No more sleeping ;

too much roaring

water, wind and hail.

Sudden stillness, perfect silence,

starlight, moonlight

eerie quiet.

Snuggle down deeper, wrap tightly the downie,

gale has finally blown itself out!

Was hoping for respite after two nights of storms but the icy wind suddenly rises from the sea, driving the pregnant clouds inland, spilling the cargo of hail. And then – abrupt silence, stillness, respite from the wind and rain until all at once – it starts all over again! Weather warnings for wind and ice!
