The Lightning is a Yellow Fork -E. Dickinson
Her poem is her pointing right
at flashing mental lightning,
as she herself makes light of light
to give her mind a quietning.

I know the poetess and her magnificent poems. This poem is new for me and expresses,according to my opinion,the presence of Nature in Her strenght and energy ; the light comes to reveal darkness of the surrounding and of the poet's intimacy.Dickinson is an example of woman which marked a revolution in poetry because she embodied poetry itself dressed in white women clothes. I really love thi poetess
