Ali Znaidi- A Poem

Sonnet 3
midday devoid of
sunlight full
of solar eclipse
filled with opacity & black fog
butterflies blinded
went astray
collided with each other
smashed against the walls
like colourful glasses
dead butterflies
stuck on the walls
afternoon filled with sunlight
walls filled with butterflies corpses
a canvas astounding Salvador Dali
