Sky

For a while the sky
looked as if it threatened rain;
but then changed its mind.

Buzzards

At first I hear them mewling,
then I see them circling
against the backdrop of white cloud
in a blue sky.

Drama

Backdrop: dark, moody, grey sky.
Spotlight: early morning sunshine
on houses and trees.
Nature's drama.

Clouds

A bright winter's day.
White clouds sweep briskly across
cold azure blue sky.

Autumn

Between rain showers
patchy blue sky and sunshine.
So Autumn begins.

Nowhere

Fluffy white clouds hasten
on their way across blue sky,
going nowhere in particular.

Biting Back

Winter
bites back.
No sun today,
sky overcast and grey.
Cold.

In the Air

Feel
the change
in the air.
Blue sky, bird song;
Spring.

Worth Commenting

Contrails glide across
a clear blue patch of sky —
a sight so rarely seen
all those long weeks of Lockdown
that now they are back again they seem
worth commenting on.

Evening

Darkening sky.
Thunder rumbles.
Rain hammers down.
Evening grows dim,
angrily early.
