NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 1

the word sprouted feathers
the most beautiful plumage
impossible to look at in direct
sunlight but impossible to
look away from shimmering
like a mirage or a rainbow
or alabaster coated with oil
but that damn thing
would not take flight
sitting there like a cannonball
already shot
rusting away in
the rain
