The Sun hid behind the clouds
gone were the people and the crowds.
Day turned to night in an instant
and happiness seemed away and distant.
It splits the sky; it’s scary yet alluring
sometimes, it doesn’t seem reassuring.
It frolicks and grooves, bold
but it makes bodies and objects feel cold.
Oh, what’s the name of this stunner,
which clouds fail to hide under?
It comes in a blink and is gone in a blink,
it’s a strike flashing away from clouds (resembling ink).
It’s a unique creation of nature; I guess it’s frightening
Now I know the reason why we named it lightning.
Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
