This week, for #Skywatch, I’m sharing two images of the stormy skies captured from my window and a few lines of poetry…do let me know how you find them!

The fading light,

like dead leaves—

 rakes up memories

 

The rain clouds,

now, glowing embers,

gently spread across.

 

In the cimmerian shade

of the murky sky,

I lose myself, again.

      Thank you so much, Sunita. I did too…Loved the meaning and the even more beautiful connotation of that word, but most surprisingly, two images that depicted the exact shade!
