Candles Light Even Through A Storm ©Sascha Darlington


Storms Within

Storms hurled.

Thunder shook.

Lightning shredded.

Now we commune in candlelight

the flame flickering

casting suspicious shadows.

We would have chattered once

until dawn startled the horizon.

Now words are hard,

topics unmalleable

our years together

disintegrate like corroded batteries

acidic, forbidden to touch.

  1. Wow! Chockablock with great images. Relevant to me because it’s monsoon season here (lots of thunder and lightning), and I recently had to change the old, corroded batteries on the tractor and gator. Did you know there’s a gel you can put on battery terminals to prevent acid corrosion? Perhaps we need a gel for people. Enjoyed this.
