I Caught Sunlight in a Bottle


Photo by author, Gregory D. Welch

I caught sunlight beams
in a bottle on my front porch
as the fire of day fell behind the hills
snuffed out by twilight and the moon

A sun faced bottle, clear until daylight
gets caught up in its glass, sun-catcher
all that’s left of the day, as the moon rises
to her lofty night-sky coronation
