Jingle’s Poetry Rally–“Sunrise on a Plane”

Sunrise (on the way from Gothenburg to Copenhagen)

Sunrise on a Plane

At earth’s black edge
an artist applies a wash of
orange—wet on wet,
teases color from the center,
adds more water then
works in a pale shade
of blue.

    Something I often enjoy one on one, when on a 24 hour flight to India, because I have a layover, I sometimes manage to see two mornings in two continents.. Nice idea for a poem!

    What a nice perspective of how sunrises come to be. How beautiful! Maybe you are on your way to your mother and are looking out of the airplane window–my good wishes go with you. xoxo
