Cloud Cover

Cloud Cover

A cover of darkness
Across the evening sun
Clouds forming shadows
A look of linen homespun
Grey lined with silver
A token resistance
To the black blanket’s
Impending persistence
Magnificent painted sky
A kaleidoscope of watercolors
Each evening a different palette
To guide home the sailors
Puffed and looking weightless
Providing shade when in motion
Sometimes crying with rain
Giving to the earth with devotion
The ever-changing canvas
of clouds in their splendor
To be a prisoner of their beauty
I would gladly surrender

    one of your really outstanding poems Christine, each line was like sinking my teeth into a sweet marshmallow and feel it bounce back against my tongue, rich and full of wonder. I am in love with this one!
