Changing Sky

How many are the years our world has been an entity? And for how many more has there been sky, the earth’s celestial skin, which must have somewhat changed from years before? In purer times, man may have seen it loom with diamond clarity of layered blues. Though like today, it also grayed with gloom, it must have dazzled dusks in splendid hues. And even now, despite new damage done to its most fragile part, how it can shine with utter brilliance, changing with the sun while we below keep marring sky’s design! Perhaps a Holocaust will bleed it red. Though changed, it will remain when all are dead.

    Oh yes Petal, put the wind up us all why don't yer lol. But that 'perhaps' does loom large in the sky, I would agree. I see you tried to placate yourself with Tom, pathetic lol. Take care, Richard

    P.S. My terzanelle took me a few hours to write - though not in one sitting. It is certainly a challenging form!!

    WOW. I love where you decided to take this topic. It is so true - We are slowly destroying our beautiful world. As always, a gorgeous sonnet written by your deft hands!
