I look up at the sky.

Watercolour of funny kind of swallow.
~


I look up at the sky
And see the swallows fly
Upon deepening blue
With sunset of orange hue
~
A descending red ball
And then it is no more
For nothing can remain
That out of nature came
~
And soon the heat of day
Will slowly fade away
Just like the fading light
Into the shade of night
~
Everything gently flows
In the wind that blows
And in the setting sun
That’s rising for someone
~
For somewhere someone yawns
To see and hear the dawn
To see brightening skies
Upon the swallows fly
~

That out of nature came'

Very soft and beautiful, I do love watercolors...

Too very soft,
yet the poem is great philosophy...

In rhymes..it touches one so softly..thats the beauty i behold, as I leave this page...

the art seemed very abstract...prompting to search for layers....

i love your rhymes and art,
see more of yours!
wishes!
