A Gray Dawn

The gray dawn slaughters

the promise of Spring,

Winter’s desperate last goodbye

 

Its poisonous haze mocks

a sky forsaken,

the sun again denied

 

Its blanket lowers

in a shroud of judgment,

its verdict darkly stained

 

To deluge its exit

in torrents of thunder

—as light reflects in vain

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2017)
