Spirit Spoke

Response to prompt words provided by The Sunday Whirl Wordle #545 lilt rubble scarce homes unrelenting explosion power free wicked sing spirit rise

Wind whips through homes
abandoned to the rubble
Fire stretches to engulf and swallow
old timber

Explosions rock the earth
freeing huge boulders
Power lines are flattened
the streets sing in unheard agony

Unrelenting wickedness devours
the land scarce of life
Unfettered until the lilt and call
of the human spirit rises in protest
