I am standing in a doorway,
looking over my backyard.
Although it is summer,
I cannot feel the sun.
A low, loud growl
is coming from afar.
It sounds like thunder,
echoing like a millstone
grinding the horizon.
A sound as frightening
as it is beautiful.
An aria for the dead.

Then it happens.
Darkness falls.
It was high noon,
yet all has become black.
I stare into the vast emptiness
that was once sky.
No sun, no moon
no clouds, no stars.
No Mercury, Venus,
Jupiter or Mars.

I try to get back to where I know the doorway was
But all mass seems to disappear.
There is no floor, I fall.
In infinite emptiness
I am falling perpetually.
