Something you can count on.

The sky

it is never not there

will not leave a note goodbye

to disappear in the night.

Serenely blue, growl of gray

watercolored clouds a tumble

dependably ever-changing, yet

never forsaking.

When the curtain goes up at sunrise

a steadfast performance

worthy of an audience.

Don’t miss the show.

No tickets necessary.

  1. Your poetry again amazes me, Ali. “watercolored clouds a tumble” and it is indeed a show. The sky is an interesting to watch. Here in Australia, we can get blue skies without clouds and then skies that burst with colour when there are clouds up there. You captured the beauty of nature so wonderfully.

    1. Mabel, my favorite part of blogging is hearing back from my readers. Thank you for taking the time to share your reflection and the words that resonated with you. It is always fascinating to hear how each person takes away something different from the same poem. Have a great day.

  2. Oh, so true and such a beautiful reminder. With the grey skies, I often think the sky isn’t really there since I cannot see the blue shades I love so much. But, in the end it is still there.
