And So It Goes, NaPoWriMo

IMG_2245

 

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!

  1. I’m catching up after a busy weekend. I’ve just read Jane’s “Dusk When,” posted close to the same time as this. It’s so interesting to see you posting poetry with thoughts that seem to mirror each other. Especially here with your “and yet, the shadows / flicker, so come song and light” and her “muddied uncertain / shifting light / sigh and sift the silver / of the rising moon.”
