Better late than never. This week’s prompt overwhelmed me with a surfeit of images. Not sure the following really counts as a “poem”!
day intersects night in the gloaming,
arching mountains merge in misty valleys,
while heat and rain combine in burgeoning forests,
and brilliant green foliage cuts across deepest shadow;
will hope and history unite to save our future?
