    I am listening to distant rumblings
    growing closer and louder
    once again down deep
    I question...

    Is this the..... End ?
    the eve-ning the wind
    will bring the fires to light the sky
    one thousand miles up
    to burn inward ever-after
    at one thousand degrees
    for one thousand years
    till the seas...boil out
    to burn continental crust
    down to the mantle...?

    The window panes are shaking
    now tinkling with a foreboding...

    I remember as a young child
    at the window
    in the back bedroom watching the
    great thunderstorms while reading "Revelations"...

    The same question played across
    my fertile imagination then...

    Now..not as naive but now...
    my mind is
    full with my own cache of horrors and
    worldly visions of hell's promises...

    And...

    During these storms demons grow huge and
    blank-eyed....blood seeking and
    stalking across a blasted landscape
    become my home...




    cccCCCCCCRRR AAAAAACCKKKK !!!!

    ..It's cracking now..striking nearby
    branches are scratching cryptic
    upon the waning rooftop
    rain is pelting mercilessly...
    playing my spine-
    sixth sense
    convinced......something

    is coming...

    ~if not on this eve...



    soon.





    On A Continuous Journey

    you paint a vivid image with your words....
    waiting for a deliverance from the heavens in the dark hours of the night...
    memories of childhood coming back to haunt us...

    this is very eerie..........Gman

    It describes almost to a "T" a dream I had a few years ago.......watch the signs..........like a thief in the night. Powerful poem....gave me chills.
