Deluge of Raindrops

As a liquid blanket shadows the Earth

 the mighty luminary pales in vision

Hazy silhouettes hold hostage the skies of blue

An arctic chill detains the atmosphere

As a tsunami of nature’s breath slaughters the bark of decomposed limbs

Fields of green and amber are slain within powerful sprinkles of dew

Besieged pebbles whitewashed by a torrent of trouncing streams

Defeated valleys drown in overflowing brooks

Quivering synchronized raindrops baptize the still of the night

 with all ferocity

creating melodious sounds

 of a deluge of raindrops
