Sunday Sonnet!



Above, the angry voice of Thor resounds,
Instilling mortal creatures with alarm,
Below, the noise prevailing peace confounds,
Skeltering the vulnerable to keep from harm;
None did such vulgar force anticipate,
As stillness deepened in the fading light,
Nor did preceding light’ning vitiate
The shattering impact of disabling fright;
Then pelt cascading icicles of hail
The unprotected and the unforewarned,
Like diving demons on their prey prevail,
Relentless frozen pellets mercy scorned.
Too often on the wanderings of this life,
The Hand of Fortune such events contrive!

  5. I wonder why such things so often take us unawares? Of course we can’t see everything coming, but maybe we should be better prepared, if only by past experience. Favourite line: Like diving demons on their prey prevail. Love those strong, driving stresses and the alliteration.
