The Gate Keepers:5

Slowly  shrinking, the horizon falls, as the first light shows off it’s starkness.

The boiling new born sea all fresh and wide eyed watches the first  dawn’s brightness.

All seems safe and brightly lit when of a sudden the sea and sky turn grey.

Boiling rain begins to fall , and screaming at the horrors of  it’s bloody birth this world begins it’s first day.

At first, the sound , a droning  was not upon the ears a threat.

Louder it became slowly encompassing all capturing  as in a net.

Crawling, across the ground, the horrors advanced across the virgin soil

The gate keepers could only watch and despair  at the beginning of their toil.

The faint humming became a drumming louder, louder ever coming

It set the gate keepers feet to fearful running, running.

They fled, they ran , useless though, they were perused becoming sought

They fled like rats from water , faster faster …………. no use before they started they were as good as caught.

    This is both metaphorical and allegorical – very well done, indeed 🙂

      Hi Noeleen I hope you well and that you receive this , I am glad that you are enjoying listening to some of my poems, I enjoy listening to people reading their work and I especially enjoy listening to your spoken posts. That is the reason I plucked up the courage to read some of mine. Please tell me your feeling on them. I have been enjoying your holiday story, wordpress has not let me like or comment on most of that ( sending email to explain all that!) So I am fighting to be active and standing up for myself , only to find wordpress is against me!! Love and hugs to you both!! xxxxxxxx

    A fascinating discussion may be worth comment. I believe that you should publish more on this particular topic, may well be a taboo subject but usually people are not enough to speak upon such subjects. To the next. All the best
