Omolara (From Heaven To Earth)

Rating: 4.5
Ominous clouds
sent the sun into hiding

Making the day
seem like night.

Out of the sky
flashes descended

Lighting up
the earth.

Amidst heavenly claps,
trees bowed in reverence.

Rent, celestial curtains
let out long needles.

All that was laid bare stung,
To quench the thirst of mother earth.
