Poetry Sunday: Dear Sky


Dear Sky



Dear Sky:


I bask under your brilliance,

I sigh as you lighten through the hours.



I relax as you color my end of day,

And I contemplate beneath your moon and stars.



Your colors emerge and delight;

They renew my soul and sing to me.



Yes, Dear Sky you are my muse,

My life giving breath, and I honor you.

Another epistolary poem, in the series I am writing, from a letter I wrote in April of 2016.  This poem was written on a morning of brilliance as the sun rose.  I hope to post one of these a month.  I will be taking time off for the rest of December….enjoy your holidays and I will see you around the New Year.


I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.

  1. I like the way you address the sky as though it were a living being. I feel as though it should respond to your appreciation, and somehow I think that it does.

  2. Beautiful poem and images, Donna. Lovely. I am a sky-watcher, too, as you know, so my heart sang along with your words. Have a wonderful December. See you in the new year!

  3. I love the idea of writing a letter of appreciation to the sky. This is a calming and meditative write, something needed in today’s world!

  4. Enjoy your time away from the blogosphere. December is a very busy month.
    And add me to those who gets heart balm and solace from the sky (and nature more generally).

  5. Ever changing yet ever marking the beginning and ending of our days … the constant in our lives. Thank you for reminding us!

  6. If only we would look around us and be thankful for all the unsung beauties and gifts we receive in our lives. Perhaps then there would be more people with smiles on their faces. What a stunning poem of thankfulness this is Donna.

  7. Your colors emerge and delight;
    They renew my soul and sing to me.

    The Sky can be such an adorable partner giving mutual support to all. Many may not realize it
