A Flash of Light

A flash of light, All consuming noise, and the earth gave way.

Dark was the night, cold was the ground. Legs caked in mud, Two quiet creatures sat in the gloom. “Are we to die tonight?” The smaller of the two asked. “I believe so” The taller answered.

A flash of light, All consuming noise, And the earth gave way.

In between the light and noise the silence was deafening. The smaller shifted in discomfort, his fear palpable. “Are you afraid” He asked. There came no answer.

A flash of light, All consuming noise, And the earth gave way.

A small trench was illuminated for moments in time. light came, and went, closer and closer it creeped. The boy trembled with fear, never before had he felt fear in such breathtaking fury. “PLEASE MAKE IT STOP” he shouted over the noise. The wind howled on, as if to answer his plea.

A flash of light, All consuming noise, And the earth gave way.

The man grabbed the boy by his arm and shoved him to the ground. The top of the trench now gave way to oblivion. Nowhere to run, the man stood over the boy, shielding him from the terribleness of it all. “it’s going to be okay” he lied.

A brilliant flash of light, All consuming sound, And the Earth shattered.
