Winter Sky

Lavender-gray clouds fill the sky.

They look painted on a canvas,

with shadows and lines.


Overlays of apricot, pale turquoise, and pink

bring the bare black branches of the trees

into stark relief.


There is tremendous beauty to be found in the sky.

The sun is a pale lozenge of yellow,

and light seems to shine through layers of tulle.


The light shifts as the shadows lengthen,

and the air takes on the chill of the evening breeze

as it drifts through leafless live oaks,

still adorned with the trailing lace of spanish moss.
