My sky

Sometimes I wish I could paint so I could show you my sky at dusk. But I can’t. So I’d have to contend with telling you instead.

Gray hovering over the city lights

Periwinkle blue splashed here and there

Wisps of violet and cobalt

Threads of silky white

A bright blue backdrop

Peach and pale pink highlights.

And as I keep glancing to write this, the sky darkens. Now indigo, then blue, almost black. And I wish I could have captured the colors as they were. Plastered it on my canvas. But I couldn’t. So I’d have to contend with reading what I wrote instead.
