Laundered Light

she makes blackout poems
from news headlines
the way leaves
overcome a storm
and cradle the last raindrops
as they drink the laundered light
the way no night can last long enough
the way no fear is dark enough
to stripe her new rainbow

Quadrille: a 44 word poem

  1. Wonderful!!! Especially in these days of in-your-face headlines and violent news….we must continue to see and stripe our own rainbows…find beauty in the midst of storms.
