Forceful gales


There's a wind that hails
from forceful gales,
its power uncontested.

In the time it blows
preparedness flows,
its target unmolested.

And the hull is sound
as it sits aground,
beyond nature's mighty grip.

But the wind that hails
from forceful gales,
longs to sink its ship.

  1. It is a beautiful poem.
    The forceful gale prepares and does not molest its target the sea that flows . Nor the Hull that stays on the ground held tightly by nature…..but the man made ship is vulnerable….to natural forces …sadly true. This tempest should not arise in human hearts , if it does , it will wreck the ship . Forceful Gale….is such a non pejorative term , but the metaphor does the job of indicating a wreck so subtly.
    Well done !
