The Warning

by kiwisteveh

Darkness spreads
on us its slow embrace -
false promise, beguiling Judas kiss.
The heavens
roar their unchecked anger;
Forked-tongue rage cracks open moonless sky.
Gather all
your courage to confront
the violence of the coming storm

3-6-9 Poem contest entry



I posted a first version of this poem with just one stanza. A couple of sharp-eyed reviewers pointed out the contest needed three stanzas so I have added 1 & 2 and retained the original stanza as 3. I actually think it is better now. Hope this doesn't disqualify me from the contest!
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
