thunder

thunder rolling
as darkness slowly ebbs
toward a new day
low dark clouds smothering
the slumberous landscape
thunder growls as it advances
reaching into the soul
foretelling the rending winds
nothing safe in their path
the heaving destruction and pelting tears
the random bayonets of lightning
to leave behind an altered world 
swept beyond the grasping heart
laying bare what little remains
the broken shards and heaven-soaked terrain
to every possibility
