approach
Messenger,
of a change in inherent skies --
Winds, disturbed,
thrust the air into frenzied breaths;
an encroaching horizon's frown
drawn in dark furrows,
clouds, thickening angry fists.
In the periphery,
beleaguered rays of a cornered sun
spill, in panic almost,
their fan of desperate gold
folding before the invaders
trampling delirious
in their stampede of gray.
Jon Bohrn (2000)
