Poetry Prompt Poem

As promised I’m posting the poem I wrote to the Monday Poetry Prompt. Here’s the picture:

And here’s the poem:

Clouds have learned to funnel

their way to the ground, spin

themselves into black thickness,

and swallow whole lives

and trees below—like an all-natural

atom bomb spreading destruction

from the top down.
