Expression in the Blue

One autumn morning,
when I came down,
the autumn sky
was wearing a frown.
A myriad of clouds
had wrinkled its brow
into an expression
of not quite sorrow –
the blue was furrowed –
waiting for the sun to turn it to gold.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: The sky’s the limit (in 44 words)

De is our bartender for this week’s Quadrille and the word is ‘sky’.

  1. This is absolutely exquisite! I love the sky with it’s expressions 🙂 it’s feels as though it’s trying to communicate with us in a silent but familiar language. ❤️

  2. This is something I need to share with my fellow writers here at dVerse. I so enjoy reading the work that you create and post, and am genuinely honored to be embraced as a part of this community of poets. May we all find healing in these challenging times. And as a true aquarian love child, and also a proud flower child of the 60’s, who truly believed then we would some day change the world to be a better place for all, and still believes that we might yet do it — I wish each of you peace, health, and love. Write on!
