Poem: "This Hidden Light"

This poem was inspired and sponsored by dianavilliers, who sent as a prompt one of her daily photos.  (If you are not watching her blog, you are missing some magnificent photography.)  I love these glimpses of sights that few people get to see.


This Hidden Light


Like a velvet blanket
it unfolds itself across the sky,
all plush purples and fiery orange

spread above the earth's black skirt
sequined with silver cities
just before dawn.

Yay!

Those clouds looked so much like a big fluffy blanket to me, I just had to share it.
