Frothy Blush

Eastern skies parade
pinks and earthy oranges.

New spring colors burst forth,
tinting clouds and mountains,
a frothy blush of strawberry milkshake
cool creaminess.

Skyscrapers glow warm peach
and sweet cantaloupe melon flesh.

A natural palette of intense hues
display a timeless beauty.
Spring’s theme – perfect any time of the year!

Layers

Dark morning
single star wavering
alone in sky

no sunrise promise on horizon

Dark buildings
stand impassive
skeleton towers
waiting to come to life

Dark absorbs thoughts
hides goals
hides dreams
Self walks away
layers peel off
another
then another
onion skin transparencies

Strong urge to chase after them
bring back these diaphanous apparitions
but curiosity wins
need to know meaning of layers
these beautifully fragile layers

Sky remains dark
single star blinks
layers have gone
mystery remains

Inside dark building
shower stings
water beads pelt
raw form
no promise of sunrise
on horizon
