Heaven splits in shards, above, 
Thunder mountain.
Midnights hews casts harsh contrasts,
 Illuminating the crimson horizon.  
Natures raw power shutters, 
Shaking hells earthen realm.
Jolting vast expanse, bare witness,
To dooms echoing sounding.
Lightning’s fiery rain reflects,
 Storms raging conflict commencing,
It's retaliation. 
The hammers anvil strikes, without,
 Mercy’s justice.
God's drumming beat, exposing his,
Angry wrath.
Half eclipsed beneath,
An eerie shrouds vial, 
A steamy mist covets all. 
Mortality's apocalyptic avalanche,
Becomes calamity's jurisdiction. 
Taste hot winds breath stirring,
Molten ash,
Lava oozes, down side slopes,
Deadly path.
Shifting gravitational resistance, 
Mankind’s Eden is silenced,
 In seconds. 
Nothing remains except dust, 
Carried forth by shifting air.
Hollowed empty reminisce drift, 
The volcano erupts delivering,
 Destruction on a unmerciful wave.
Life has fled farther distances,
 Seeking shelters safe harbor.
 A lunar landscape is left behind.
Refugees flee under shadows, 
Leveling ground.
