Poet’s Corner- Watching the Sky

I love watching the sky

From dawn to dusk,

Clouds open doors in pockets of light

Drifting in many blue spaces

Becoming dark and then bright again.

A symphony of time.

The opened expanse peppered with birdsongs

Forming lines miles ahead

To a chorus of shapes.

And sunsets display primaries in layered hues.

A silken backdrop laced with a sea of stars

In a nighttime dance shows

A cosmic web which awakens the senses

To a winter long as years,

Still, as the seasons speak

In the language of the day.

Poem, Watching the Sky, and artwork, Moonlight Sonata, by Marsha Solomon
