Before the Storm

Before the Storm

Before the Storm 2

The time before the storm
when we are waiting for the rain,
for the howling winds, and
the simple purity of disaster…
are curiously the most beautiful.

Perhaps through the lens
of some wayward
anarchistic nihilism;
the vast tempest shadows,
the sky’s glowering orange…
these colours seem all the more
beautiful.

They’re painted reminiscent of
the will for clarity
before the storm…

raining down like symphonic cascades,
washing away the discord
into the cadence of roaring gales,
so impressive that they silence
even our bombastic fanfare.

These times are curiously
beautiful.
