Watercolor

I chose Payne’s Gray
instead of black.
It’s not quite death—
more like a nightlight
in the next room.

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.
