April is National Poetry Month. I’m celebrating with Writer’s Digest’s Poem a Day Challenge. Today’s prompt is perfect for Earth Day–nature.

poetry month  yellow



Clouds darken over fields of wildflowers

ranges of snow-topped bluebonnet peaks

fiery sprawling lantana

delicate pink cups of evening primrose

yellow ringed firewheels

sunny splashes of coreopsis

prickly purple thistle puffs

Petals shimmer in the breeze

shadows swallow the sun

then a sudden drenching

the sky an overturned bucket

ceasing as quickly as begun

Later, clusters of white stars

rain lilies

reaching for the night sky

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
