A Walk Through The Forest At Dusk – WWP #14

A walk through the forest at dusk
Blood red skies
Crickets chirping cheerfully
Deer grazing peacefully
Even so…
Fear is still following me.
Greeted by the cool breeze
Had to pull my coat tighter around me
I shivered, however not
Just from temperature, but
Keraunophobia – thunder and
Lightning, storms
Make me afraid
No, never give in
Only to God will I surrender
Petrified but I trust in Him
Quiet forest no more
Rain falls, pitter-patter
Suddenly an owl hoots
The night is filled with sounds
Until thunder deafens
Walking unafraid,
X marks the spot in time and space where
Yes, Jesus saved me from my fears
Zealously I run back to the tent to get dry and allow the rain to lull me to sleep

**Special thanks to Diana for the K phobia – that really made this come together. πŸ™‚

This was in response to the Weekend Writing Prompt #14, Fear. The poetry challenge was to do an ABC poem (and the extra challenge was to reach Z, which I did, WHOOOP XD), so here it is. If you would like to join in the fun, here is a link to the submission guidelines for the anthology. The deadline is August 10th. πŸ™‚

  1. Great poem! I learned a new word: Keraunophobia. I may have a little of that. The rain doesn’t bug me but however, I have an abnormal fear of being struck by lightning. I know I have a better chance of winning the lottery jackpot than being struck by lightning. But I heard stories of people being struck 5 times, as if they are magnets for lightning! lol!
