Poems Collection #1

By: Clare

 

24 hours

Midnight

12:00

black, rich, velvet sprinkled with shimmering gems of twinkling stars

Twilight

6:00

colors woven seamlessly into the dimming sky as the sun sinks beyond the shadow of the land

Morning

8:00

bright, translucent azure washed with the shining yellow of the sun and green of the trees

 

Storm

the sky darkens

and the blue recedes into angry hues

like dark red and tinted purple and deep navy

and then the clouds come in

rings of gray in different densities

like the huge arm of darkness reaching down from the heavens

slamming rain and lightning and thunder upon the land

carrying out nature’s wrath on the earth

while the ground welcomes the storm with open arms.
