Black Sky



Black Sky


Darkness rolling in, heralding the anger of the Gods,
Great rumblings roll over sodden earth rough shod,
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,
Tidal waves cresting along the shores like tipped spears,
Wailing winds screaming in anticipation ready to strike,
Outrages building all day seething with dislike,
And still the skies darken, almost blackened now,
Elements’ coming together is one almighty howl,
Watching as l do from within my humble abode,
Admiring the wrath of the weather when she explodes,
Mortality weakened when nature powers her deity,
Threatening our fragility’s with encroaching black skies!

        1. Absolutely!

          It’s so bizarre that l fell in love with brown gardening lol!

          It’s also strange that since composting, l have developed more of an empthy with worms. My partner sometimes catches me when l am crooning over the worms and the size of them lol!

        2. Worms are awesome. I spoil mine. Chopping up the food small, they can process it quicker. Mixing in crushed eggshells for their gizzards. Yeah, it’s a science and it’s super fun. I love talking worms with people. lol I’m weird, I know.

      1. YES! Found it! My wife placed it in an obscure drawer (A rarely used drawer hidden un out coffee table in the living room) for “safekeeping” I bribed my children and announced that the first person who finds it will get a 12 pack of yummy sugary soda just for them! It was found in 2 minutes flat.

        1. Ah thank goodness Crazy, l had to concede to losing sleep about it, but now, my regular levels of insomnia can return.

          Glad to hear the lost drill bit has now been found and is back safe and sound 🙂
