A lightning strike creates a flame
that sets alight a
monument of fame.
As the wind blows the fire grows.
The glow of the fire gives a flickering light,
banishing the shadows of the night.
Feeding the fire the flames just grow higher.
Nothing left to burn; from fire to embers.
Everything has been changed; people don't remember.
Since they were all gone from last year's false dawn.
The wind will now carry
the ashes away
and the plants will sprout
where the buildings lay.
A world without worth
will experience rebirth.
