Sky (Eternal Shades of Winter)


The sky unfolds before me

In serene quietude

In pale, boundless beauty

Singular and silent

A vast space

Today, in mourning dress

An undivided grey

Bleak, eternal shades of winter

Darkened corridors of clouds

Like shadows, fallen on the ground

Impenetrable and cold, like betrayal

Yet dreamlike and somehow soft

Like a velvet sigh

Unmoved by the whispering of the wind

Or the weeping of the rain

Distant, and drifting on alone
