POETRY: Nature

This came from the single thought of rain as "a sky in mourning," and extended to the recent Hartford incident where 78 year-old Angel Torres was struck by racing cars and left there by the passersby.


The day of trees,
arms reaching
for a sky in mourning
(a strange anomaly
and yet…)

liquid life spread red
moistening the black
sealed earth

It is a day
of drawing
breath from spillage
without the spilling of
a tear
