The skies!


Is there anything as beautiful as a winter sky?

I drive west this evening
fuchsia, orange, lavender
provide a backlight for the blanket of white
blackened silhouettes of trees and rooftops-
a full moon shines in my rearview mirror.

I listen to others
of cold, ice, snow
joined by a chorus
of repeating back-up singers.

Don’t they know?
Beauty exists all winter long.
It’s easy to find-

Look up!

The skies!

  1. Beautiful. I’m a skywatcher myself and probably have thousands of photos of the sky. Even on a gray day, if you really look ,you’ll see many subtle color differences. Its always amazing.
