purply pink skies

erupt into a blue hue

clouds skid by

trying to fly

then blood red

from our sinking sun

heralds another day done

as moon and stars

glint in the silky dark

each hour ignites a spark

as she constantly changes gowns


d’Verse, sky in 44 words, De


  1. Loving this description you’ve writ….most especially these words
    “clouds skid by
    trying to fly”
    So unique to use the word skidding yet I can see it….
    And how wonderful, that last line. Personification sublime!

  3. Another stunning piece, Kate. I love the changes in the shades of the sky, and the comparison to it changing like gowns… That’s perfect imagery. I love this piece, it’s beautiful.

  4. Wonderfully lyrical, Kate! Indeed, you chose the perfect word in “seductress.”

    Very few of life’s experiences are as mesmerizing as the hour when day and night melt into each other. Day yields eventually, but only after the most breathtaking display. Then it’s the stars’ turn to put on a show of their own.

    Missed it today? Same time tomorrow, give or a take a minute. Never gets old, either.

    Thanks, Kate, for sending us tickets!

  5. Hi Kate! This piece you wrote today was wonderful to read. BTW — This is something I need to share with my fellow writers here at dVerse. I so enjoy reading the work that you create and post, and am genuinely honored to be embraced as a part of this community of poets. May we all find healing in these challenging times. And as a true aquarian love child, and also a proud flower child of the 60’s, who truly believed then we would some day change the world to be a better place for all, and still believes that we might yet do it — I wish each of you peace, health, and love. Write on!
