Colors of the Sky

Have you ever scanned the sky,
questioning, reflecting, wondering why,
at the dawning of the day,
what the colors seem to say?

As the sun peeps through the dark,
colors rival singing larks.
Shy and meek they seem at first,
growing softly to a burst.

Pastels of yellow, pink and white
delicately escort morn to light.
Blues, lavenders, softly entwined, 
dawn in infancy begins its find.

Day will grow as we must do,
mature to colors - a deeper hue.
reds and oranges, mildly bold,
paint a story - ne’er fore told.

Yellows, blacks in mixture too,
hints and tints stirred in the brew.
Hues more vivid than the morn,       
stronger, deeper, colorfully warm.

As the day fades back to night,
shadowy gray's the appetite.
Life’s a day of many blends,
colors ranging, thick and thin.

As the night begins its reign,
twinkling stars come out again.
No lovelier image can one pretend,
than viewing nature as it transcends.

    great way of getting in all the colors for one day. I read your Rainbow poem again and then realized I had already read and commented to it, so came further down the list to this one. I am sure this one I had not seen yet. I need more poems of yours to comment to, Lady! thanks for your comments to ME. I like how you make your poems visual. LUv, Andrea

    I appreciate the simile of the colors maturing and intensifying simultaneous-ly with the "birth" and development of each day. Cool!

    Such a beautiful reflection on the ever-changing colors we see at sunrise and sunset, Carolyn! In Daytona they hold Easter sunrise services on the beach and the onset of day creates quite a spiritual mood. Makes you feel closer to God and His power. Wonderful poem that brought back great memories for me! Love, Carolyn
