Sudden rain over a darkening ocean
Compass points hidden by the approaching storm
A demon swirls beneath the surface,
howling at the rising moon
Jean Badenhorst

Sudden rage

Steam rises above the rippling surface
Coolness below salves the heat
And the gentle path to shore
allows them to drift
gently…
Grey clouds gather
The sea ruffles and splinters
Sudden rain over a darkening ocean

Sun on their backs
Summer afternoon promise
Sea swiftly changing
as waves start hurtling
Mind starts fracturing,
foaming on a choppy path
Searching…
Flimsy craft topples
Searching…
Compass points hidden by the approaching storm

From the madness of the city
crazy white waves gather
rushing towards her
White edges snarling-
no swift peace here
Hilly outcrops call
beyond the limits of her rising fear
One step faster,
crashing helplessly on the beach
A demon swirls beneath the surface

Galloping moments of anguish
ignite the passion,
Light flashes across the wild breakers
The time between
grips reality
Voices whip through the crippled trees
The last gasp of the early evening
seeks help.
Darkness starts its embrace
howling at the rising moon.
