    Night of Fire

    Written by my 15 yr old son.


    I stand here on the hilltop.
    Watching Zeus' wrath on the Earth.
    The ground rumbles under my feet.
    As if it is an ogre's birth.

    I walk down the street.
    Only sound, the roaring of a frog.
    Calling to another,
    Love, come from the bog!

    Together as I do.
    They sit and watch the show.
    The lightning's brilliance.
    And the fairies' glow.

    It is so beautiful.
    As if in a dream.
    But I know it is not.
    Because I don't have to scream.

    I see true magic at work.
    Lightning sparkles in the skies.
    Just as majestic
    As the radiance of the fireflies.

    Finally.
    After all these years.
    A moment of peace.
    To bury stress and fears.

    In the midst of brilliant chaos.
    I feel true joy.
    Guilt and sorrow seem to disappear.
    Going back to the innocence of a boy.

    yes, he did a good job. But I will say I'm praying God will change his heart and he will someday change "zeus" to GOD!~ He's told me Christians are "closest" to truth, but he doesn't like our stance against "the gay issue." sigh...

    In that case, I'll be praying for him.
