NaPoWriMo 2017: #1

With about forty minutes to spare, my first poem for April!

 

Here’s the journal draft:

skyfire

And the final, followed by the photo I took that inspired it:

skyfire brings its molten wings
to span the sky as sundown sings
of triumph over wilder things
in heavy skies with blinding stings,
with tears to drown the dreams of kings
and winds to snap their puppet strings

a lucent voice now sweetly rings
beyond the veil to which it clings
as all around, in everything,
a warmness blooms and solace springs
