Storm for Sunday Whirl #73

Thanks, Brenda, for the Wordle Prompt!

once upon a rugged morning
out of a remote meadow
where splendor shook its grace
and thunder rolled a blessing
a deep shadow with an attitude
rolled down the ridge
across the marble markers
across the backs of silent cows
across the fierce warriors
suffering took a second seat
to that shadow with an attitude

That must have been quite the storm. I love the description of it crossing the backs of the cows and rolling down the ridge.

Wonderful poem! I love: "thunder rolled a blessing" and "a deep shadow with an attitude." Very creative!

So... is it a "shadow-tude?" Ha! Sorry, I couldn't help myself. This is a gorgeous write. I love it.

My favourite phrase is 'where splendor shook its grace' but what I really love is your water colour!
