Final Flight – #PoetryMonth 2018 – April 17

Final Flight
A rage of flame
blasts invisible blue
from chrome jets
straight up

Waves billow
through the silk cavern
until flame-lit colors
rise from the dust

We shiver in the pre-dawn desert
amid of a horde of undulation
as sharp, fiery reports burst
and crack our pre-coffee silence

One by one,
the giants sway
until they lift
into the twilight dawn

to float

wherever the winds

will take them

Poetry Month 2018
I’ve resolved a few times to write a poem a day during the month of April, and I actually succeeded once. I’m again trying it out. No idea what each day will bring. Some light verse, some politics, some “oh shit I didn’t write anything today” haikus. If you read one and feel moved to comment, please do. If you want to share your poetry, please share!
PS: Today’s poem prompt was provided by terrible tragedy
