Ever Changing Sky

O ever changing sky, blue-gray and maudlin
your mood and *unsettled ways, meld with mine.
Clouds seem but blemishes upon horizons
as weary as the soot smudged cheeks of urchins.
Bruised in hues at once fresh with pain and longing,
not yet healed by the riper rise of next day’s bloom.

O ever changing sky, the nascent forest’s buds.
Its lashes linger in the purple poignancy of dusk
and whip thy brow with thrashing maple limbs.
Eyeless vault of heaven cry for me, release my plight
erase with thy wonders this tattered visage so forlorn.
The sky of night holds many jewels of delight.

O ever changing sky, clear to crisper shades of sapphire,
ping with shooting stars and glowing diadems of light.
Let lavender blue soften my sorrows for I like Merope 
need Orion’s might to lift my heartache, to point the way.
May thy constant rebirth give hope which melds with mine
and brings a beauty brighter than your Venus to the day.

*Orion is both The Hunter in Greek Mythos and a constellation
**Merope was Orion’s star crossed lover.
***Venus is the Goddess of Love and the Morning Star

Gordon Lightfoot Song "Unsettled Ways"

    I like this. I have to close my eyes to 'see' it all. Have you seen Indescribable? If not, you need to, it will blow your mind! God Bless. Dave.

    Debs, this is just filled with beautiful imagery. Were you using some line of a Lightfoot poem, because I see francine's note to you. If so, write it at the bottom so she will know it uses one of his song titles!

    I'm confused Debbie, this is entered in my "LIghtfot" contest, did you mean it for something else as it does not qualify for mine
