Blazing Orange Sky


While breath says, “Look!”
And fingers point
The blazing orange sky darkens
Instantly

And sizzling ebony cracks
On nascent chaos’ edge
With dreadful, teasing wait–the ‘s’ of gasp
As agitated air, long tormented, breaks

Into the cracks, between the worlds, unseen before,
Strike Thor’s electron seas of boiling rage
Which seize from land
And rip from sky

To shock the gazing lower self
Mute watcher on the darkening soil
While rolling cannons roar…
Tsunami sound, whose child is pouring rain

“We are still here, Albion,” cry the elemental gods,
Still watching, waiting, as you run

And sometimes, anything but silent…
