Early Hues of a New Day

a kyrielle

 

At half past five through the window

Ghostly silhouette of willow

Casts shadow-black on dusty grey

The early hues of a new day

~

A ragged scrap of sky unfolds

In tones of purple blue and gold

Like marbled paper tossed away

The early hues of a new day

~

The liquid taciturnity

Is rippled by birds’ melody

Releasing as the shadows fray

The early hues of a new day

~

Yielding to the eye of heaven

Darkness lifts by half past seven

Opaque blue replaces grey

The early hues of a new day
