Blue Sky

For DVerse quadrille today, De says “the sky’s the limit!” This is also linked to FOWC: Doleful. The sky where I am today is far from doleful. 🙂 It’s a welcome change from a week or two ago.


Looking out the front window, I see sun:
The season’s listing toward September,
And the sky’s no longer filled with embers
And ashes.
Sometimes reality crashes
Into my saccharine reveries, frowns
Find my face, but blue is not doleful
Above, in that heavenly place.

  1. Hello RW! This is something I need to share with my fellow writers here at dVerse. I so enjoy reading the work that you create and post, and am genuinely honored to be embraced as a part of this community of poets. May we all find healing in these challenging times. And as a true aquarian love child, and also a proud flower child of the 60’s, who truly believed then we would some day change the world to be a better place for all, and still believes that we might yet do it — I wish each of you peace, health, and love. Write on!

  2. My daughter, who lives in Salem, Oregon, has taken some photos appreciating the return of blue skies, and even a rainbow. Thankfully, their air is clearing.

  3. “And the sky’s no longer filled with embers and ashes.” This is an incredibly deep and profound write, Jenna! We are making the most out of the blue nowadays as the sky slowly transitions to gray 🙂

  4. It is a worry that many places over the world havce experienced such destruction of forests, icecaps and seas over the last few years. Sadly we are probably responsible by our own greed and carelessness. Just as well we have poets to try to point this out!

  5. I love this line describing the transition into autumn
    “The season’s listing toward September,” The word “listing” is perfect.
    And oh yes…..skies full of embers as the fires rage on…how welcome a perfectly blue sky would be to those suffering through these disasters in California, Washington state, and Oregon.
