The Battle

Thunder and lightning

Thunder echoes across the bay

As the night cools,

And the steam from the land

Rises into colums

Reaching into a clear blue sky

Completely blotting the sun.


Darkness descends on the land

The light fights for it’s place

The darkness cracks

The light glows through

The darkness shudders with all its might

Trying to scare the light away.


The light won

Glowing the cracks in the dark clouds with its radiance.

Lighting up the land

Until the battle was won and

The light returned

Having chased the darkness away.


Even at night

The moon and stars can glow again

Once the darkness has been erased from the sky.
