Hear The Howls Of The Wind

By: Angela Gallant

Hear the howls of the Wind
Mourning the day we came.
Whipping wildly
Past sharp corners.
Flowing through grass nevermore.

Feel the Earth’s grumbling
Shuddering destructive shrugs.
Never left in
Peaceful aging;
New skin left all bare.

See the Waves crashing
Upon a barren shore.
Black waves killing
All within reach
Retreating to attack again.

Light burning through the night.
Destruction all around
Orange and red
Blue and grey fog
Searing live and dead.

We sought to control the Powers.
Instead, we freed the Chaos.
In fear, we run
Fighting futile
Battles to extinction.
