Burning skies

Jane Dougherty Writes

A poetic response to Paul Brookes’ ‘This day’ photograph. You can see the image on Paul’s blog here.

Burning skies

How many fires in the sky
before the snakes and strings
of cultured gemstone-light
sink into the ocean of dark night?

Moon-sun perhaps
will wash them away

and when daylight rises again
there may still be eyes
wild and wide
to marvel at its pearl-soft purity.
