The Sky Dances Different Shades of Pink

This evening the sky dances different shades of pink

That remind me in part

Of the fuschias in a garden

I played in as a child,

In part of raspberry ripple ice cream.

 

I know that soon the colours will fade,

And like all things of beauty

That touch our hearts,

It is not mine to keep, or possess

Or hold.

 

So I’ll just stand and be in this moment

And look to the sky,

As many have done before and

Many will do again.

 

I’ll let myself become the world,

Through these eyes looking out

And up.

I like the impressionistic rendering of the sky. Your mind can still see childhood in all the circumstances of your present life. Good work.

What a moment to live in. You painted such a vivid story here. I agree with Jim 100%!
