Sky, perhaps

The Daily Post prompt is: sky


After the night,

so long, so dark, so silent and alone,

the day.

After the black,

so deep, so cold, so oppressive and so bleak,

the grey.

Despite the anger,

red and fierce, so final, blazing raw,

will you stay?

Though I regret,

reform, reduce the differences so slight,

words hold no sway.

Beyond the cloud,

so thick, so low, so damp, the sky,

so they say.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
