The War Of The Sky And The Sea.

 

Warnings were made of the battle to come,

a distant rumble, the beat of a drum.

 

The sky, it grew darker, although it was day,

it soon became clear what was heading our way.

 

The wind gave a roar and the sea gave a splash,

straight towards cover we went at a dash.

 

With a strength that was really so hard to believe

the wind summoned the lightning’s assault to proceed;

 

the sea answered back with a loud eagle cry,

it would not be beaten, just let the sky try.

 

The waves, they came rolling without any warning

right towards the place that was busy storming.

 

They met with a sizzle, they hit with a crash,

over and over, each other to bash.

 

We need to get higher, they are drawing blood

that comes right towards us in the shape of a flood.

 

The wind it is howling, the waves give a roar;

hard to tell which one has the higher score.

 

Hour upon hour, the conflict is seething,

neither shows signs that it will be conceding.

 

But there comes a time when both seem to tire,

they lack the power that to win will require.

 

For now they will settle, and both will withdraw

but it’s far from the end of this frequent fought war.
