Let there be Storms by Liyona

Let there be storms

that crash and ravage

around.

Let there be winds

that tear and roar

through the costal plains.

I have founded my

hope

in something other than

my home.

I have founded my

life

in something other than

my breath.

Let there be storms

that sing and dance.

Let there be winds

that whistle and hum.

I have decided to

build

a trust in something

other than

the disasters

something other than

the fear.

I have decided to build

my hope in

one

who saves.

YHWH.


This poem is directly inspired by the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge at Go Dog Go Cafe. The prompt this time was “Let there be storms”. I am working through older prompts to help spark my imagination. Be sure to check out the challenge every Tuesday! Photo by Mike Lewinski on Unsplash.

Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
