The Outcry

By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to Sammi Scribbles Weekend Writing Prompt #261 in 65 words exactly.

Far below a noise began
slight and distant and
barely discernible

Moons circled their planets
and black holes grew
Millenniums passed by

Sound rose in volume
a shattering crescendo
Past eons of galaxies

Darkness fades to black
black to purple to blue and red
Blood red obscures the sound

The outcry surged forth carried
by fear grief anger and angst
Unheard in the heavenly mix
