Poem for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts offers: Fireworks




Crone in the Moon

three quarters of a step beyond
the top of the midnight hour
dawn rubs the nub of dark

thunder slung by fireworks
embeds like earworms
rebounds from fissures in the sky

with a hum soft as breadcrumbs
the crone retreats to her crater
and the rain begins to gush

'A hum as soft as breadcrumbs'.... a unique phrase and I could never explain to anyone that it feels exactly right!

and
the last stanza:
with a hum soft as breadcrumbs
the crone retreats to her crater
and the rain begins to gush

is my favorite!
