Excerpt

    Bright blue
    Peaceful
    Over endless paths
    Her fingers reached out
    Pleading
 
    “Plead you God?
    Run away instead
    And save your life”
 
    She ignored
    Unhearing
    Looking to the sky
    She spoke
    And thunder answered
    Roaring
    And lightening shattered the mirrored day
 
    Frightened faces
    Looked to the sky
    Spears were dropped
    Children were grabbed
    The huddled people scattered
    Running in all directions away
    Further and further
    Merely specks
    On the edge of the horizon
 
       Return
 

Falling hands
Thunder and lightening ceased
Her fingers reached out
Untying my bonds
She put an arm around my waist
A hand upon my wound
And from her eye
A smiling eye
Flowed a subtle tear—
A lone tear
To keep moist the heart
 
I was happy to see her
But I knew
That death was with me
 
I wanted not
To lean too heavily
Upon her
 
I staggered forward
A step
And slumped to the ground
 
Darkness fell heavy
Upon my world
