SKYWATCH FRIDAY


Celestial
Innocent resurrection, blue
radiance in your morning window.
The only blue but for
a robin's egg,
a parakeet feather,
a reflection in the Caribbean Sea.
Bird arrows, hawk's wings,
slashing contrails intersect
the tendons between Earth and forever.
The disconnect of clouds,
opacity blocks our view
of a pure and singular blue.
From this terrestrial ball
sunset meets moonrise
in a sizzle on the horizon.
Then the colorless glow,
the kiss of moonbeams
shining in your night window.

What a lovely photo, Diane.

I love the concrete details: robin's egg, parakeet feather.

And I adore the lines "sunset meets moonrise / in a sizzle on the horizon."
