Newspaper in the Wind

There go yesterday's
headlines careening headlong
into the future

The Finch

The day is grey
Clouds, sky, trees
Somber in their gauzy veil
And light —
a distant memory
But suddenly
Defying prediction
Hope sings out
And piercing the gloom
One golden fragment rises
Like a splinter of
Some shattered sun
Returning home
