night sky

The sky
Water-colour blue
But paler for a moment
Like the cup of water
Half full
With the brush that has been dipped in azure
But only briefly.
The locust trees on either side
-fanned out black leaves
Subdued by dusk,
By the stillness
Of breathless.
I watch the watered blue sky
Darken
Slowing becoming the night-black spaces
Between the trees. J.Hamilton
