A storm approaches
From where I do not know
The thunder is loud
The lighting lights up the sky

                Flocks of birds
                At different altitudes
                Are flying in and
                About the storm

                                At a high altitude
                                There is a distressed flock
                                Being battered by bolts of lighting
                                Yet they continue to fly directly into the storm

At a much lower level
A determined flock fly close to the earth
Hail strikes at their wings
Yet they continue in defiance

                Above the clouds
                There is an overstocked flock
                They fly in every direction
                Unconcerned with anything around them

                                Closely in front of the storm
                                There is a healthier flock
                                A few try to fly back but are unsuccessful
                                The others do not even bother
