OUT OF A DARKENING STORM

A hundred years
ago such evil crept
bent
on destruction
winged messengers
full of hate
spread wings flying
into the lives
of millions seeking
seeking the path of peace
through war
A hundred years ago
men walked amongst men
lay amongst men
died amongst men
A hundred years hence
they still talk and honour
that which came
out of that darkening
storm
no not the death
no not the evil
those who thought
and fought
in the name
of good peace
A hundred years hence
from the day
those shores invaded
we stand and wonder
we stand and worship
we stand and honour
as we should
but the shadow
of the darkening storm
hangs still over us
a million winged
messengers
still tell their tale
of that dark storm.

From the Painting: Out of a Darkening Storm - April 2104
