The Longest Day

June 24, 2017 12:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

I read in the Mirror

about the sun,
how heat rises through ancient rocks,
creates a searing beam
and catches fire
on the longest, hottest day.
My skin is red,
blistered from exposure,
unprotected, fragile,
but you aim your lens
to steal my spirit.
From up on high
you deliver your news:
your solution
a divine cleansing
of furious flame,
and now the sky burns,
a beacon of ash
and silenced voices,
sheets of blackened cladding
floating to the earth
like headlines.
