Artist’s Impression

Artist’s Impression

Rain clouds slowly moved on
after resolving their differences
with an impatient evening sky
anxiously waiting to throw
a star-spangled velvet cover 
on the remains of the day

If the full moon could speak
he would gently ask for
the wind to refrain
That the sea might remain calm
and allow its light to reflect 
on a still surface illuminating the night

The artist’s preparations, meticulous 
A serene nightscape comes to life
On a daily blank canvas
Earth and sky exist in harmony
Calming, soothing 
and brilliant in its beauty
