Blackwater Storm

power running raging smashing
black and silver lightning flashing
roiling boiling blank rehashing
dashing hope and quelling fire

terrifying in its splendor
all is smashed within the blender
there’s no choice but to surrender
drowning in the dark and dire

at our best, we’re insects swarming
here amid blackwater storming
pointlessly some shields reforming
upside downside lower higher

held here by the truth and hour
helpless with this show of power
just to wait it out and cower
until God declares
cease-fire
