Its branches look like stereotyped gray lightning on the sky.

"M. Chélan had acted as unwisely in Julien's case as in his own.

Emily Dickinson
“If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it. Is there any other way?”
Emily Dickinson, Selected Letters
