A tumbling, pastel sky,

Lone clouds like a long

Tear in well-worn

Fabric;

 

Colours changing;

Kaleidoscopic,

Blending, from warm yellow,

Ochres,

And oranges to cool,

Almost-white,

Blue.

 

The birds, and bushes,

The brushstrokes

On rich, rolling

Canvas, as

 

Thought, emotion,

Distraction,

Are captured indefinitely in

Directionless branches,

Silhouettes against the pastel sky.
