A crayon-box sky – #WednesdayVerses

Beyond the horizon,
The sun sinks away
Its pale yellow rays,
Kissing the blue day.

An orange wave
Slowly wets the sky,
Above the green trees,
Where the birds fly.

The mountains afar,
Black as the night,
Just moments before
A snow-capped white.

How beautiful to see,
Colors waving at me,
It makes me smile,
This crayon-box sky.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
