Great Rumble

Lightning strikes
Like artillery works
Heat and violence washing us
In waves of light.

Who struck first
And who strikes last
When dust and cloud
Settle down

Into ash and earth.


The Ruby Portal

Red Sky at Morning
And you were born in the churning storm
Following the warning.

Violence in the wind,
You board up your windows,
In limbo again

While the tempest rages-
Your most-valuables
Barricaded in cages.

Red Sky at Morning
Blink away your warnings.

 

Red Sky at Mourning
These are your days of turning,
Unfurl your sails, still forming

Warm yourself in the light of day,
Put your face into the tide
Get your strides underway

These howling winds will pass
You are seaworthy, and your hull
Will remain intact

Red Skies never last,
The sun’s fury sets

This too shall pass.
