Dublin 2009 – an evening sky

by Susan Abraham

This fading, wintry afternoon I saw a stylish dash of mauve and handsome indigo speck, bully each other for a space in the sky. The colours waltzed, boxed and swung until they were bruised both black and blue…a strange, extraordinary palette of a canvas masterpiece gone wrong, for which they would blame a stunned passing nimbus who thundered up a storm bearing injustice. Would the cloud shower up some rain and get rid of its murky grime? Both the mauve and indigo claimed they were too far up an emerald gloss to be on show with soot. From somewhere far, a shy azure hid away, glittering happily with borrowed haloed illuminations from a compassionate visiting moon.

    As a moon lady (born under the sign of Cancer) that line truly speaks to me Suse! šŸ™‚
