Alcreator Litt Dear
Your Acrostic Poem.
O My God I......

You did very well telling us readers the beauty of nature
My only thought you have couplets which are difficult to read.
I'm thinking to make your excellent poem easier to read.
Put a space after each of your couplets.
Gert

This is a beautiful and poignant and altogether an excellent poem. I love the rhymes with their substance and poetic charm. I also love the ending the way you finish with the title of this piece. The flow and meter are well done.
But, the message is where this really stands out. I believe, as you do, that nature is just doing its thing when it rumbles and causes, destruction of people's buildings and houses.
Kudos for speaking up for the natural order of things in nature.
Thank you for sharing and for letting me share as well.
Have a good afternoon,
Jesse

Excellent imagery in the well written rhyming poem, "Midst of a Storm."
Good end rhymes and good use of alliteration throughout.

Very nicely done.

Blessings

Your poem is very descriptive about the forces of nature. I enjoyed reading and reviewing it. I like the end rhymes, the smooth flow, and the vivid details. Your descriptions relate the coming of the storm well. I like the line about the quiet clouds that pass even though they are scheming in silence. When a storm hits, as you have described well, there is no time to blame nature. One's concern is to be safe.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

You have perfectly captured the capriciousness of nature in this piece. A peaceful sky can suddenly turn black as threatening clouds come out of nowhere. Then the thunder and lightning begin - culminating in a violent storm that might drop hail the size of tennis balls. Very scary when the sky suddenly turned purple as our plane made an emergency landing in New Jersey once. Violent lightning like I've never seen before. Opted to take the bus back to Boston instead of sleeping on the airport floor for the night...

I didn't know what direction you were going with this at first but I Love it. Mother nature is unpredictable and can be cruel. I think that you captured both the placid and the purging behaviors that nature can wield. Great job.

Although the metre here is uneven in places, I enjoyed the clever end rhyme pairings and the sentiments of the storm and its destruction, albeit a natural occurrence and its chaos unintended, love Dolly x

You have well penned a nature theme creating colorful imagery in solid rhyme. This poem would be well presented in rhymed couplet format
as well. An overall enjoyable read.
