“The Sun in Silence”

The sun in silence sank below earth’s rim.

But, like a generous king, he scattered precious treasures in his wake.

The lower sky revealed a broad flotilla

of roseate cloud ships, which had just survived a battle, hulls aflame

in pink and dappled with smoky spots. Unscathed

galleons of pure flamingo floated lightly

upon midheavens’ breast. But, at the zenith,

hovered a single boat, in rose so tenderly colored, delicate,

diaphanous. And that high sky behind

it whispered in an infant’s voice of subtlest blue. The sight of that

lone cloud of rose, afloat upon that soft

caress of pure blue sky, pierced deep into the tissues of her heart.
