The Daily Post prompt is: sky
After the night,
so long, so dark, so silent and alone,
After the black,
so deep, so cold, so oppressive and so bleak,
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.
