“Goodbye to the Day”

                   by Bonnie Athouriste

An impressive unveiled house
Six doors glassed-in
Tremendous light
Nice…bright.
Evening ribbon first flight before the switch

The old agreed to the new…more than new.
The transition…scattered art portraying resilience
Value the day’s last departure
Grab the gift!
Limited previously, now available to many.

 

[Note: This poem based on blackout/erasure writing using newspaper article]
