Ashes

Whistles blew as sharp winds sang through leafless branches
Red lights flashed as swords of bright lightening ripped
the sky in two
Tears flowed from sorry eyes while black clouds rained down buckets

Shades pulled on rheumy eyes as stars burned themselves out
Life leaked out of him and pooled on maple floors
Rainbows turned to ashes blanketing the earth
Footsteps through the ashes mark his journeys end
