S&R Literature

S&R Poetry: “Rebuked,” by MJ De Angelis


Because the thunderstorm needed watching,
I rocked on the front porch to behold the night scolded by lightning.

Above me a buzzing bulb drew a twisting cloud of insects.
When they reached it, they ricocheted, scalded and blind.


M.J. De Angelis lives on the Lamprey River in Durham, New Hampshire and enjoys fly fishing. His pieces have appeared in: The Penwood Review, Third Wednesday, Sonnetwriters.com, Wild Goose Poetry Review, Scholars and Rogues and Chiron Review. Although his first passions are poetry and fly fishing, he pays the bills writing software.
