A Sinless Sky

A touch of blush, soft and warm, blooms Across the eventide sky, bathing the earth In myriad pastel hues, heavenly grace I soak it all in my shriveled, fractured heart.  Lifting my gnarled, bony fingers I touch the breeze That flits in through the gaps, unconfined And I close my eyes, floating on its wings Unrestrained for a moment in time The evening, a shy blushing bride Beckons a love, so dark to her light The night eternal sets in, engulfing all In a deceptive lull, cocooned in mystery.  Amidst the hoary gray expanse Caging my life’s essence and heart’s desire I wish for an evening, from a distant past Under a sinless sky, holding you to me.    Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
