DAY 6 NaPoWriMo

A NOD TO EMILY (dickinson)

‘twas not a ribbon at a time,
Not this morning’s sunrise.
‘Twas more a nuclear flash,
Vaporizing the horizon;
Blinding, searing, startling the grackles
Into a grating Gershwin noise.

I imagine this evening’s sunset
Shall be just as brilliant.
There are no gentle dominies
Leading flocks across our mountains.
