A Gray Dawn

The gray dawn slaughters
the promise of spring
—with a desperate last goodbye

Its poisonous haze mocks
a sky forsaken
—with 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 the light reflects in vain

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2016)
