Storm Navigator

Vigilant on the moody moor,

the beacon drew its fire

from the brewing storm,

leeching potency from the clouds,

filling the giant’s chalice,

not with small beer

(not by any stretch of the imagination)

but with Thor’s thunderous percussion

and the hammering of rain,

ale fit for a leviathan.

Sue has given us as inspiration this amazing image of an unlit beacon against a stormy sky.
