Wordless Wednesday: Rainy Brooklyn Lights

Prodigal:
A yellow-eyed monster
Steps forward on the motorway
And gives birth to a trumpeter
In a red band uniform marching
Gaily into the muted rain.
For a moment
I am blinded and deaf,

But only for a moment as the light

And the thundering voice of heaven

Engulf me.

For a moment I am afraid,

But only for a moment;
This is a dream.

    Happy New Year Sandy!
    I like your poem. Are you sure you were dreaming and not in Manhatten last night. It seems your camera might have been bumped just as you did the shutter. Very pretty and intriguing!

    So did you have the poem first and look for a photo to go with it, or vice versa? Great match, in either case. Happy WW and Happy New Year.
