The Web Poetry Corner - Darryl Ward - It is Cold at the Height of Summer

It is Cold at the Height of Summer

by

Darryl Ward

It is cold at the height of Summer
angels cry from clouds in sympathy

tears from heaven assault the thirsty land
the ground is moist but cold

its dampness torments my feet
as I dare to absorb the atmosphere

stormy silence shatters my sense of sanctity
mildew darkens the emptiness inside

and colour fades to monochrome
while all semblance of sanity is lost

the Sun has passed its use-by date
as I stand in wonder at the sudden eclipse

totally alone on a windy road
It is cold at the height of Summer
