Big Window

a quick glimpse of something beautiful

Awful Beauty

Here’s something I’m wild about.  It’s an excerpt from an untitled poem by Richard, a 17 year old posted on the WITS blog, A Poem a Day:

The lilacs will stay

With an awful beauty

A tunnel to the outskirts

Filled with dragonflies

An arguing headache

With a colorless zero

Or a color blind fire

Sleepwalking down the skyscraper…
