Winter Dark -- on the First Day of Advent, the Dawn of the Return of the Light

The Sky is Black 
By Elyse

Girded by white frames
blue skies shine and shimmer

Fading daylight makes a dreamy canvas
Tufts of clouds slip onward, slow and lazy
Leaves of Fall touched daintily by wind
shake against the outside peeling fence posts
Grape vines tremble, rotted edges browned

The sky is grey, blending with hazy clarity into
evening. Plants are hard to see
 against the fence. Died-down winds
Pastel gone dull

The sky is black, the flowers vanished, gone
