tranquil standstill 

looming clouds
draped over a frenzy city 

trapped in time 
a movie held on pause 

dignified, nonchalant 
literally looking down upon us 
unmoved by the winds
sighing in slight vexation
at our trivial worries 
of changing tides 
and the tick-tock clock

dignified, dangerous 
as if about to explode 
in a firework of raging rain and deafening thunder
just like your mother 
when a bad report card comes home

enjoy this tranquility 
the calm before the storm 
you know 
it won’t last forever
