Evening's Blanket

                                             I watch the horizon
                The oak boughs seem to be brush strokes on a blue canvas
                             Wisps of painted clouds tickle the leaves
                                       Like lovers' hands entwined
                                    In the evening their color fades
                               They become still shadows over gray
               And their soft edges resemble the clouds they contrast in day
                      As if those clouds came to earth in the cool of dusk
                                            To blanket the prairie
                Then sleep there at night to grace the stars with clear skies
                   When dawn comes they gently soft and smooth
                            One never sees when heaven greets them
                                            And the prairie wakes
                                              I watch the horizon

    Big congrats, Caleb! Your poem is a painting. I'm kind of totally astounded by how easily you can shift from writing hilarious booger poems to writing something as gorgeous and romantic as this!

    She does paint a restful picture, framed in the sky. I'm working on one with sort of the same theme...hope to post it soon. Having trouble with the flow.....Enjoyed this one !!
