Life in Pastels

Sunset at Picnic Island

————–

Vintage watercolors

drip down on one

tired evening…

Painting with feathery strokes…

a brush here…

a touch there….

Like the wings of a

slowly dying butterfly

spiraling towards the horizon…

orange meets blue

in a pillow like

collision…

Silently battling in the sky…

Until the clouds and sun sink

like scarlet comets…

giving way to the moon…

And its bone like

countenance…

Laughing silently…

in a suddenly…

chilled..

sky…
