The Warning by kiwisteveh
3-6-9 Poem contest entry

 
 
Darkness spreads
 
on us its slow embrace -
 
false promise, beguiling Judas kiss.
 
 
The heavens
 
roar their unchecked anger;
 
Forked-tongue rage cracks open moonless sky.
 
 
Gather all
 
your courage to confront
 
the violence of the coming storm

Author Notes
I posted a first version of this poem with just one stanza. A couple of sharp-eyed reviewers pointed out the contest needed three stanzas so I have added 1 & 2 and retained the original stanza as 3. I actually think it is better now. Hope this doesn't disqualify me from the contest!
