Nature’s Fury,posted by ranu

Hurricane winds and snowstorm got together,

To teach us humans a thing or two about weather,

The skies in St. John’s turned amazingly white,

On a Friday when folks are not in a mood to fight

The snow came down fast recording 4cm an hour

The mighty hurricane exhibited its power

It blew away anything that came its way

It humbled the locals so much that day

They agreed to stay home and pray.

A state of emergency was declared

Some got their cameras to catch the horror

Houses broken to pieces, wind spreading terror

All I could do was repeat ninety-nine names of God,

Hoping we’d be forgiven and live to see,

Another fine day, the sun shining in glee.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    It’s nice to see a post from you :).

    This well-written poem about the power of Mother Nature makes it clear that weather is powerful!

    All good wishes,


    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you for your comment. I had a virus infection which kept me sick in bed for almost a week. I’m hopefully on the path of recovery. All the very best to you and your family. Happy New Year. 🙂

    • Dear Sonya,
      Thank you, we are still digging out from this fierce storm. We hope with help we might be able to clear all this. Perhaps our leaders will realize that sixteen year old Greta’s message is not a joke. 🙂

  2. Thank you very much for sharing in your powerful words the first hand feelings of the residents of the dear city, St. John’s. The storm sounds so alarming even in description, I cannot imagine how it must have felt actually to those around. I am glad to know that you have been safe. May God have mercy on us all.
