Natures At Odds

A bird alight,
unwanted by the sky,
it flutters through the storm
half drowned in the torrential rains
warmed only by the proximity
of the lightning thrown down,
blown and tossed and whipped
by the very wind that holds it.
Driven by a nature all its own
it strives to embrace
the hostile sky and soar.
