The grim reaper.

Lightening, Frightening

Struck the beast

Sheltering from the storm

Under the long standing beech.


Forked lightening

Appeared to penetrate

The stone wall of the old farm house

Struck home at the heart of the family.


The sheepdog lying

with head resting on outstretched paws

not knowing that his work was done.
