Summer Sky

You dressed 
yesterday
in benevolent blue;
your full skirted frock 
waist gathered in with 
the smell of Saturday’s lawn
and bird cry's 
eighteen carat tinkle.

Your jeweled neck
its gracious curve
promising protection
at every horizon

until
 
this flogged night.
A new you:

clouds peeled back
stark neon skeleton
the slash 
of exposed bone
and roar of pain.

You clapped 
me on the back
thunderous hands
ignominious 
as laughter.

  1. Enchanted descriptions of nature. November weather can be so fickle. But then April isn’t much better 😉

    I do like a good lightning show. 🌩 (lightning coming from a cloud).
