The start of a storm
Months and months of violence
Fiery Red Sky
Peace returns after the war
Drowning hope everywhere

NOTE: Tanka is a Japanese poem consisting of five lines, the first and third of which have five syllables and the others seven.

This tanka. Makes one visualize their perspective of storm, violence, war and peace.
A storm is always followed by a lull.

Well written. Really liked it.
