A Westing Sky

A Westing Sky

Someone slit the mango,
spread the skin across the sky--
this sunset after the storm.

Ten shades of peach,
apricot, persimmon
dark'ning to plum
deep black grape.

On the horizon
the bruised fruit of night.

  1. Very lovely! Keep them coming! Would be interesting if you could use embroidery like sis to also "sketch" the scene from your window!
