Darkness rolling in …

Music – Storm Clouds

Darkness rolling in …

The heavy darkness rolls in, heralding the anger of the Gods,
With great rumblings moving over sodden earth roughshod,
Caring not to the damage unfurling beneath its wake,

Lightning flashes, attacking the skies, and the ground shakes,
Deluges’ falling in great horrendous splashing fears,
… with tidal waves cresting along the shores like tipped spears,

And wailing winds screaming in anticipation, ready to strike,
Outrages building all day, and seething with dislike,
And yet still the skies darken, almost blackened now,

The elements came together in one almighty howl,
And watching as l do from within my humble abode,
I do so admire the wrath of the weather when she explodes,

Our mortality is weakened when nature powers her deity,
…. and threatening our fragility with encroaching black-skyed synchroneity
