THE GAUNTLET

lightning--Jason Barrett

–Photo by Jason Barrett–

Ran the gauntlet
Ahead of the storm
Black clouds billowed
Lightning flashed
Fears disappeared
When exposed to
Light of day
Nobody cared
Where I’d been
Where I was bound
From absolute beauty
Came absolute reality
Life was precious
And, could suddenly
Unexpectedly, be
Taken away
