Nimbostratus over the lake 
smoke grey bringing rain 
eclipsing the sun.

This one escaped
from a volcano 
carrying fire in its bowels.

Smoke from the dragon’s mouth
burnt sienna and soot
hanging low; mirrored. 

Over the placid lake
simmering rage
witholding rain.

Written for Sadje’s WDYS #178.

Thanks for reading 💖

  1. For me, nature is the best poetry and anyone narrating that is the best disciple of nature.
    I don’t have any doubt and surely mind if anyone else has. Thanks a lot.
