Midnight Hours (Sedoka & Tanaka)

by Meena Krish   Jun 25, 2019

As silent wind sleeps
war drums beat from a distance
its rhythm grows steadily

Glints of silver crack
and mingles with loud thunder
arousing the wind goddess,

Her spirit awakes
feral joy blooms in her eye
she sings howling wind
and with untamed melody
beckons to her prince of rain,

Behind dark clouds the
illuminant moon shrivels
as beads scatter upon earth

Rain takes hold of wind
prince and goddess dance as one
during the midnight hours

    Your verses came alive for me. I adored the grace, intrigue and the mystique of the storm. There's a playfulness in this piece, a rhythm, and I just loved the idea of a wind goddess and a prince of rain. It really gave this poem spirit, as opposed to just being a nature poem, this felt like so much more. I felt an energy reading this!

    So awesome that this was formed as well. This rocked, Meena :)
