Billowing winds, skimming the surface of the dark gray sea.

Churning the water, forceful and wild.

A distant howling, the promise of an untethered force.

Swirling mute skies, the storm approaches.

Gathering pace, gathering noise.

Waves rising higher, crashing from their peak,

to the foamy wash below.

She will take no prisoner’s, have no mercy.

Arc’s of silver flash in the distance,

into the depth’s of the angry sea.

A building crescendo of deep, growling,

closer, closer.

Mother nature, she reigns supreme,

ethereal, powerful, a universal queen.

My Fo!rmative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    Fabulous shot, Malcolm! Reminds me of a line from Peanuts ( I believe) when Snoopy is busily writting his novel atop his doghouse…he always started with the line, “It was a dark and stormy night!”….this is exactly what I pictured whenever I read that! Simply superb!
