The Seaweed (2)

… A strong blast of wind blew near…
   The tree, no longer capable to hold on, flew with a tear
   I tumbled onto the ground
   Holding the seaweed close to my heartbeat’s bounds
   I tried to open my eyes to see what has approached
   But the severe flow of dust had my eyelids blocked
   I stood still beside the humble earth
   Where, in fact, I had it in my arm’s warmth
   Suddenly, footsteps were heard
   But, those weren’t of the normal and common herd

~ Four steps at the same time
   A slithering sound was added to the rhyme
   Roars exploded with every clock’s chime
   A monstrous figure advanced the sublime ~

A legendary soldier of darkness’ end
A legendary monster of Greek mythology’s trend
A chimera stood; a fiend having a lion’s head, a goat’s body, and serpent’s tail

The seaweed’s “BEWARE” echoed
For what it had was to be displayed
Just behind the unpleasant creature 
Rolled the “disastrous coach” of the featured
Yes, darkness lured into nature’s soul
As fear’s shadow began to call
An attack towards “those who dare to approach”

And so, with all the courage I had
I stood against the bad
Suddenly rays of light and darkness enlightened the sky
Fighting to reach an end; even if it meant to die!
