Dark skies threaten
Angry clouds hang low
Seams split as glorious sun breaks through
Chasing rainbows it seems.
Moving forward to rise above
The storm gathering
I turn and close off the view
Of the darkness beyond,
Reaching within to find
A better moment than what always seems
Sleepless lay waiting, searching
In the threshold of lucid dreams
Knowing enough to let go.
Long days of eternity
Stretch out like lonely roads,
Needing to touch the light of color,
To leave the blank slate of blackness-
Chalk falls to the floor
Broken and crumbling under foot.
When nothing to say leaves a trace of dust
Impressions of a dying day
Emptied of its minutes
Spent at the five and dime
Touches of yesterday
Driving home from work yesterday, the darkest clouds of an approaching front, and a blinding sun in the rearview illuminating the various rainbows before me….no place to pull aside to get an image…..on a day not so spectacular, there is always something good to find somewhere….
