Fiery fierce

The Daily Post prompt was: Fierce. It took me so long to finish this poem I went to bed without posting it. Here it is anyway.

In shadows cast by summer sun,

Fierce heat outrun,

I close my eyes

From burnished skies.


Gone is the night with cooling breeze

From northern seas,

Where white whales sound,

Grey geese, snow bound.


Behind my eyes a northern sky,

Mocks while I cry,

Casts garish lights,

As cold grief bites.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
