The Longest Day of the Year


for every day I’ve lost
there’s an hour bending
towards the light of you
in a ravel of silent tears
majestic like the rainfall
in the morning sun of ecru
all a counterflow as afterlife
surrounding me bathed in
this haunting glow and sounds
drenched in ambers of chiffon
and the raucous
rage of thunder
