on the horizon

She could taste it on the wind
a particular hardness
a flavor of regret
a reckoning was coming

The luminous sky
gave no hint of the
rage to come

but she knew the mountains
could embrace moisture
like a person holding a grudge

and abruptly
the clouds would converge
in a harrowing shadow
and pour swelling wrath
down on the valley below

  1. Simply beautiful…
    Your descriptions were just so vivid; I could see her and the mountains and the clouds and the sky right before me ❤
    Looking forward to reading more from you!
