A Melancholy Sky

by Wendy L. Macdonald



A Melancholy Sky


A melancholy sky

portrays both clouds and light

blending together harmoniously

as day gives way to night


There’s beauty even midst shadows

as we ponder over this life

What things may we let go of

and what changes to invite?


For if this life is just a beginning

and our demise only a door

I need to reflect upon its meaning

not after it opens – but before.
