Sailing the skies

Spring equinox skies,

Day and night in perfect balance,

A brief whisper of warmth, then of cold –

Like a lover’s caress.

Come unfold your sails, cast them to the skies

And float among the clouds

On this day that contains a song

Of the velvet in the fist of iron.

For more singing skies, please visit: Skywatch!

  3. Lovely prose and color contrast against the winter white. But I would go CRAZY with spring so late!!! I don’t think this California girl could move to such northern latitudes. I’m too much of a wimp! 🙂

  12. I love your verses, Fi but I think I’ve seen enough snow to last me for the next few years. I mean over here – not your lovely photos. We had it on and off for about six weeks – that was more than enough for me.
