The Judgment of Adonai


Mark Andrew Holmes

An image of heartland America—

An illimitable expanse of alabaster mausoleums

Stretching in all directions

Until perspective reduces them to nothingness—

Under a fuliginous overcast sky

With clear air underneath—

Illuminated brilliantly by numerous lightning bolts

That only rarely shatter the brilliantly shining whited tombs.
