I thought I was finished-
the beast advanced.
The lightning fueled fury-
accompanied by terrorizing thunder-
announced its reign.
The clouds kissed the ground
as Heaven threw Hell to Earth.
The swarming, black mass-
nothing but clouds- childhood innocence-
swiftly stole souls into the darkness.
Day faded to starless night.
Sunday praise dissolved into
fervent, fearful prayer,
but that terrible roar drowned them out.
Nature will defy herself.
Trees will grow tall and proud.
Buildings will be built stronger and grander.
It all began early, Sunday morning.
