Virtual Six.
Excellent.
These series of couplets are tough, in one block, tells of an impending action...a warning, a gathering, a forming in order to hit back, hit back on the very thing that compels its destruction.
A strong and resolute piece of writing. Great rhythm, with a good sense of direction, never swaying from the thread.
Bravo.
I enjoyed this, and could have read more.
Well done.
My best wishes.

Remarkable how your words and lines create a picture of that terrible storm! Live in Wyoming, land of sudden weather changes, almost constant wind, hailstorms with golf--ball sized hailstones.
Neat that you included the scurrying birds, here we know a Spring storm is coming when the mating birds stop singing. The hard wind raises waves on the nearby reservoir that make the small fishing boats run for the marina.
Yeah, Mother Nature!

PX,

This is certainly true. And for those of us who know we are in the pathways of some of the worst beasts of mother nature - we know we are supposed to plan extra hard to try to protect ourselves and our stuff from her wrath. If we don't? It's on us.
Thanks!

You've truly captured the essence of a storm through choice of words, imagery, and personification. I especially like "nature is being natural as it intended" even as we try to place meaning on a storm's devastation. Rhyming is good, but I think you could use fewer words in a couple of the lines. Excellent poetry.

This is one of my favorites! The line "nature is being natural as it intended" spoke to me and it made me think that nature truly doesn't know how or why it is - it just occurs. There cannot be one single blame placed, but it is a collective effort of destruction.

This raises interesting questions along with some unusual descriptive lines. There are some subtle lines with personification being implied, such as: "The same clouds that are plotting silence. /To create an act of violence." My favorite line is: Nature has awoken and longs to roam. Only suggestion: count syllables and work on making rhymed poems more uniform in syllable count per line.

Liked the format and the flow. is this a particular poetic form? if so, what is it? in any event, you mastered it. I liked the last lines best

Whether it comes sharply or expanding in a swarm.
You can not place blame in the midst of a storm.
