Storm red skies light my horizon
No place to sit and embrace
This gift of beauty before me
That rain will soon erase.
I gaze beyond my window
Violet flowers sit beside the road
In grassy meadows,
horses take comfort leaning on each other
I feel my thoughts drift away.
A remembered song, late for the sky
Brings a smile to this routine
And above me there lies a perfect heart
Clouded gift lightened by the approaching sun.
Yet I can’t stop now to capture it,
One can never hold things in permanence anyway
Yet I so wanted to share the moment
To show you of the wonder of this day
And I watch as it starts to move
And like a memory fading,
Slowly and tragically slipping away.
On the road ahead there is room
To stop and gather the remnants of
The beauty and simplicity found along my path
Rushing off to greet another day,
A little too late to hold the whole
Yet enough to say “see, look up there”
A gift from the universe shared.
Driving to work this morning the beauty of the skies leaving me with a gentle peace that I just had to share. So from the universe to me and me to you, have an amazing day. With love and heart filled clouds, K
