Yesterdays Storm

With a nod to dear J.M.W. Turner who felt it the deepest.

Yesterday’s Storm


It was impossible to sleep

While the storm tore deep

Lying there in tempest black

Oppressive fear wrought panic attack


Then in bleak, melancholic dawn

Hunched against the rising storm

I searched along the shore line shoal

Freckled foam pulling on shingle soul


Impossible desires and dreams tear

As tides reveal and lay all bare

Each new wave of hope draws deep

Then recedes and ill memories keep


Flotsam in untended array strewn

Tempest consequence from life now hewn

If only wave washed sand could be restored

But shipwrecked lives can’t be ignored
