THE STORM

In predawn stillness, I listen. Slumbering poppies rustle, petals drawn against the chill night. The wind sighs and eases, catching its breath from the night’s long foot race.

Then far off -- a horn. Distant thunder – not quite heard but felt. It thrums, rumbles, then crashes into wails, cries and horses’ screams. Metal clashes -- clashes then sinks into softness as blood leaps and spatters with bittersharp tang. Husks fall hollow to my embrace.

Then all is quiet again, though the poppies still tremble.

And I begin my work, so one day you may ask, “What was this place called Pelennor?”
