Amy Ate the Sun

a poetic response

photo by the author

Sunlight failed to break today,
instead I heard a rumbling burp.
The countryside lay dark and still;
No rooster’s
crow, nor warbler’s chirp.
Girl, I get when nature calls
those hunger pangs you must obey.
But next time, pick some lighter fare,
and leave some
glow for us, I pray.
