A poem I wrote after a destructive storm hit my neighborhood. I felt saddened by the amount of baby birds that had fallen out of their nests.

Callous Beauty

Destructive winds and rain violently blended the night; Each drop seeking a surface it could strike with merciless force. The trees bashed in a drunken rage Ignorant of the havoc daylight would bring.

Cracked blue eggs - Lifeless kin, With restful eyes and closed mouths once opened, Were now nothing but reminders of nature's cruel ways.

But as my throat began to clench, A red-bellied bird gathered a gooey treat, And a clumsy spotted dog passed with a heedless smile, His snout elevated to the floral breeze.

The rich flowers burst from white picket fences, In sporadic bunches of pink, white, and yellow, Like fireworks caught in time - A sharp contrast against the mournful night.

So as I walked along in blissful peace, With sunlight embracing my bones, I thought that although life can be brutal, Not everything in the world is so callous.
