Daybreak: Observed from an Airline Window

The sky shone gaunt gold
on the lip of the storm
before the anvil shaped clouds advanced
upon the burning margins of the world 

Like a dream
the thunder rolled away
leaving cotton candy swirls 
before a spreading dawn 

Gentle white horse clouds appeared
pulling pastel chariots
bearing angels - 
rainbows, tinted on their snowy wings 

Down they plunged
gilt-edged, into a pit of pure white
popcorn clouds 

Feeling God-like before
the breakfast service
I watched  delicate washes of pale lavender
mist into daylight.

Astounding images abound, with many stories to tell. The first time I went flying, I was mesmerized by what I saw when I flew above the clouds. I imagined kids having a colossal snowball fight, the clouds were so much like snow. It sparks the imagination. Creatively penned, Suz.

Hi Timothy: I almost a always write a poem on a flight and on the longer flights that go from night to day it is always inspiring to be up there, as the sky transforms to light again. Thanks for reading and commenting. SuZ
