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.
