Like an earthquake without warning

Like a flash flood in the road

Like a forest fire in winter

Like the seed you never sowed

A moment in the darkness

and a minute in the light

It shows you what you needed

and taught you how to fight

Like a finger pointing skywards

Or a signpost pointing on

Don’t look at what is pointing

Just try to see what it has done.

    • Thank you kindly indeed.
      The photo was taken last summer in Sussex, up on the Downs and it made me giggle to see a signpost apparently pointing to heaven. The hill top opposite is actually a prehistoric hill fort too.
      The poem was written as a part of something that happened on Tuesday, which you can read more about at my main blog, where there is also a couple of days left to enter a short story contest, if you fancy it!
