Fay Collins “Sunset and Squally Showers, Connemara”
The falling shale
of a thunderbolt’s bellow
cracked wide sun’s yolk

a glow
like breath of dragons

sky's shelfless larder

cloud syrup
skein on skein
perspiring down

pigmented sea and 
granite blade

and the steaming 
of rainfall

Written for Sarah’s dVerse Poetics – Fay Collins revisited. Write an ekphrastic poem after one of Fay Collins’ paintings.
