To Look Up

Under the mighty thundercloud warm air is  drawn 
Yet the wind whips simultaneously From the rising wall of slate
Steep and anviled, ominous is the beast
And precise as the shutter closed,
A grinding rumble from the depths of the grey was sounded
Like a giant awakening;
And so drawn am I to
Beauty seen in the striking skies;
Shielding ugliness at what is left behind
Biblical in scene
Of flood or gale
When the giant takes its leave.
Day after day
Storm after storm
To look up we glimpse heaven’s beauty manifest
Preferable to downward cast.
