How I Wonder – Lynette Esposito

The unnamed God took his ax
and wielded it so hard
he hacked the indigo sky.
Flinted sparks flew
like silver birds,
like light in the dark–
like stars in flight.

Lynette G. Esposito, MA Rutgers, has been published in Poetry Quarterly, North of Oxford, Twin Decades, Remembered Arts, Reader’s Digest, US1, and others. She was married to Attilio Esposito and lives with eight rescued muses in Southern New Jersey.
