Fury

Just the magnitude 

of the sky, the rise

and building of such

dark clouds, the horizon

like a swelling wave

from a mighty ocean,

the downdraft and sideways

rain before the hail began,

and I marveled as I drove,

praying for safety but also

so very moved by the majestic

beauty of it — creation,

the peace and fury of it —

astound me to a silence, 

a reckoning of my own 

smallness under the great

truth of His everything.
