The sky could not be bluer

turquoise and ocean and bright summer day

captured on the snow piled like icing on the trees,

but on the horizon

a wall of charcoal grey

hints at a blizzard on its way.

I watch through the window and hope

I’m home before it hits.

Morning came too early.

Sun squint blinds me

in daylight agony.

Out the smallest window

verdant velvet valleys glisten green,

fold under blue grey hills

beneath a sky without a touch of cloud.

Today dew settles on leaves and reflects

the illumination of heaven.

A  huge silver orb is

suspended in the mist

and glistens on the lake.

 

it was all hazy, and the sun was a huge silver orb hanging in mist. I should start carrying my camera again.

What I learned about you:

  • you did not hang the stars
  • you did not shave the moon
  • you did not fuel the sun
  • you make me super nova
  • you make me new each months
  • you make me shine

What I learned about us:

  • we’re celestial
  • we’re changing
  • we’re burning

The mahogany  marbling

of my arms betrays

my desire to remain indoors,

out of the burning glare.

Strange times, when

we are forced under sun.

Instead supervising exams

we direct lost tourists

to the Info Centre

(Google, your map is wrong,

like this government).

So many metaphors

and all day in the sun

to appreciate them.

Stabbed by sunshine,

eyes droop closed.
