Phase of Light

Within the air, sympathetic to the clouds A phase of light beamed out from the dark shadows Swirling by brightly coming out of the shroud In a circular motion the light endows The fog of the dawn slips into the night still There is some great cold air, there is quite a chill The over churned light brightens the vast darkness Moving blindly through the dark fog one must pass

    Congrats on a well run contest Russell, I reread my poem and noticed my extra sylable in the second line. I should learn to double check my work. Have a great day Russell

    Descriptive and expressive work..If for a contest, reads like a winner to me..Thanks for the visit this morning..Mostly the buzzards like to soar on a very windy day for it takes too much effort on a still day for them to get up and catch a current if there is one at all..It uses up too much energy..I watched a buzzard this morning flying over and there was no breeze..He was having to constantly work and could not stop..I thought about how some people who are constantly talking and can't ..Sara

    Make any sense out of what they say or it is the same old broken record..Woe is me, feel sorry for me, etc..They are like that buzzard flapping his wings and not going very far very fast...Sara
