Aftermath

Location

A deafening boom
The earth trembles
Neither quake nor thunder.
 
Dragging footsteps seek refuge
Past a wounded horse
A last whimper.
 
The pale moonlight
Penetrates the smoke
The field screams mortality.
 
 
Blank expressions,
Yet the eyes search
Through a fractured pane.
 
They weep in the shadows
Of fading hope
Vague memories of a face.
