England July 2022

Humid air, popped with energy
soaks empty sky where
clouds breed like
virus in a host
then
darken, roil, and
infect the evening
with thunder

This poem was inspired by the quote from Breakfast at Tiffanys : “It’s better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes.”

It was compsed and posted ii response to a prompt over at Dverse.
