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
