Peacock Sky

Have you seen the sky tonight?

It’s fan-feathered clouds

all illustrious and proud,

flared out with a haughty air.

How fragile you are, dear Sunset–

you melt into dusk, inevitably

fade away into the dark.

How sorry I am for you, lovely view–

though you put all your brightest and best

on display, many will not notice

the depth of your soul at the death of day.

Have you seen the sky tonight?

It only begs for a glimpse, a pause,

just enough validation to make it worth

doing all over again.


About thefreescribbler

My life is one of words. I am a scribbler, whose thoughts are best expressed through adjectives and phrases and punctuation marks. I would not go so far as to call myself a writer, although many would disagree. I’m characterized more by my unfinished works and half-embodied ideas, scraps of stories and parts of poems. Maybe one day I’ll be a writer, but I’m okay with being a scribbler right now. It fits my personality and style, and best expresses my aims. I’m not trying to create some lofty version of literature. I’m just a kid blogging about life. View all posts by thefreescribbler
