AFTER VIEWING THE LYRIDS

AFTER VIEWING THE LYRIDS

Monday is the silence of eclipses
Last night the sky was the royal blue heart of twilight
where seven stars hungered for midnight darkness
and then flew toward the thrust of meteors.
The wings of a storm penetrated an old memory at dawn
my car hurtling down the road
toward the clear throat of that vast April sky.

April 26, 2010?

The reference to the Lyrids meteor showers (April 19-25) dates it as April 26, 2010. Which works. There were no eclipses, lunar or solar, that juxtaposed the dates from 2010 to time present 2017 in April.
