Storm UndergroundA Chapter by Norma M Sutton
The storm rocked the land, shaking trees in its passing fury. The ground shook beneath a flooded landscape. Flashes of lightening singed the earth and where it hit the surface it's pulsing traveled down creating a heartbeat within the mantle. Below, from the safety of a cave, we waited and listened.
The rocks above crackled and flashed with the brilliance of the lightening storm on the planet's surface. Each strike traveling the vein of metallic matrix and lighting the surface of the cavern far below.
Rock music, of the natural kind, complete with strobe lighting was created by thunder that echoed down across the crystals protruding from the walls creating a strumming of vibrations only surpassed by the flashes of light they reflected.
Blinded eyes reflected the silver from below the waters of the pool at the base of the underground falls, before sinking under the rocky ledge into the dark depths away from the pain the flashes caused.
The moist dank air sparkled with electricity, refracted light traveling
across dust mote stars high above the watchers.
