Color to Light, Light to Color

Mother Earth’s Painting 💛💭

She colors the clouds with ambition
seeks the beauty in the distance
knows her surroundings
like the back of her hands;
every rise and fall
bone, marrow, and blood;
all different purposes.

Rays from above
warm the flesh;
yellow to pink, to orange and red.
Color drains from the light
like rain dropping on its ants;
one by one the rainbow of today
washes away.

To a starry night
that once was day.
