The clouds gathered dark

Stars shone eerily

Dwarfs competing with giant

Moonlight’s faded thoughts

There was no time I recalled

Where the weaker ever won

 

Withered jasmine died

Summer’s heat was but prelude

For hay set on fire

Shoulders bracing for onslaught

Ice in my heart melted not

 

Daytime’s dust lingered

New stars between Sky and Earth

Spread out shimmering

Like fragmented souls they flew

Wasted speckles of Earth’s skin

 

Distant dogs barked shrill

Crying to the moon they wailed

Loss of their masters

Gone remnants of your essence

What died once will die anew

 

The sea’s hue deepened

The horizons threatened stark

The clouds gathered dark

Mind’s eye looked over the waves

Hoping for glint in black hues
