April - NaPoWriMo - 28

I used to write
With mushroom clouds
And endings to it all.
I used to say
How I would watch
The day bombs start to fall.

I well knew how
To make friends cry
Drew dragon’s tears from eyes.
I’d share them all
And call them all
With haunting lonely sighs.

I used to write
An end to it
And maybe still I will.
But in the garden
White caps rise
And spill with summer’s fill.

I used to write
And weep, today
I’ll try to smile for you.
For see the shapely
White on gray
Are summer cloud’s renewed.

The image of mushroom clouds is so haunting-- I like how it ends on a note of renewal.
