Repentance

Repentance
 
Cascading willow trees
A whir of earth
Out the deans window
A finger clasp to parchment
A ink entombed hand

The world is changing
This storm is going
To alter the history
Of the future

A present tense siloquy
Ragnarok harpies
Lava clinging grips

Only the Mastodon
Brought forth omnivoric
Cataclysm

Out the deans window
