“sky holds blue”

Written for:  The Twiglets #196 - "sky holds blue:

All traces
of white clouds
have vanished.
Today the sky holds blue.

Blue sky
dapples ocean
with dazzling lights

small sad little boy
April rains will ruin plans
then sky turns bright blue

                 A young man who lived in Shanghai
                 was determined to touch the sky.
                   His machine, he declared
                 would propel him up there.
     When launched, he was lost in the blink of an eye.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
