And so, the moon hums
before the storm comes,
clanging and chasing away the blue,
dimming it with charcoal hues,
electrifying sky to ground—
always the way, I’ve found–
bright day gives way to night,
calm voice raised before a fight,
delight to sorrow sometimes flows
erasing joy, and yet, the shadows
flicker, so come song and light.
The challenge for Day 19 of NaPoWriMo is to write an abecedarian poem. I’ve done two stanzas—a to e and then a to f. The full pink moon was humming fiercely this morning, but we’re supposed to get thunderstorms later today. It’s very cloudy right now, but the birds are singing!
