These weather poems have featured on BBC Guernsey Guidelines during December 2009
I love extremes of weather, of record breaking stuff,
Both hottest and coldest temperatures and enjoy the sea when rough,
But the ultimate experience, at least the one I like the best
Is the noisiest spectacular that puts the bravest to the test.
I mean of course a thunderstorm where skies light with every flash
And animals cower in corners at the sound of every crash.
Such a display of power is hard to comprehend
How something so enormous can such energy expend.
We are told a flash of lightening can a city energise,
Yet can come so suddenly, we are caught out in surprise.
I love to gaze up heavenward and marvel at this show,
It tells me of a mighty God someone so vast to know.
The sound of it is awesome; it shakes the house I’m in,
You simply can’t ignore it; it’s making such a din.
Yet in the midst of all the power one fact I can’t dismiss,
Is in the greatness of its Maker, He is mine and I am His.
