Pixel Prose Challenge–The Storm is Approaching


I know it is Sunday when it is time for Amanda’s Pixel Prose Challenge.  Here is my contribution for this week:

Pensacola Beach 1989

The Storm is approaching

I can hear its roar –

waves smashing against the shore.

Dredging the sands of time in tow,

as mournful winds howl and moan

scattering the rain drops far below.

Deep thunder rumbles

echoes in the dark autumn sky,

white lightening slashes –

communion on high.

A crescendo of nature

in land and sea –

mighty reminders of

the powers that be.

Just the other day it was 26 degrees F. in the morning.  Today it is a balmy 65 degrees F. with a forecast of thunderstorms, high winds, and possible tornadoes.  You never have a dull weather moment in Florida.

Thanks for visiting me on this stormy day.  I can’t wait to see you all again!

  2. We always think that our weather in the U.K is unpredictable, but we don’t often get the extremes that Florida offers! You bring it to life with your words and picture. 😃

  3. LOVE your poem Colleen, natures awesome power in prose! The image you chose is perfect and quite haunting!
    There is something magical in watching a storm – especially at sea, I don’t blame you for wanting to go out and capture it, but stay safe when it hits hun 🙂 <3

  4. I especially loved the last four lines of this poem — the “crescendo of nature” is a wonderful metaphor. I agree with the other commenters: image and words work beautifully together.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
