paint u a picture

wish i could paint u a picture of the sky this evening; sat on this balcony in this place of grey hills.

and out to my right, a grey plateau hides half the vision; but behind are two tall tree tops, silhouetted, bending forth in the fresh wind.

and beyond…
the clouds streak across the same horizontal line in vibrant faber – peachy, underbellies against a backdrop of the palest blue;

sun has already sunk low.

i lift my eyes and see the mottled cotton wool in darker shades of blue, sun’s rays not quite reaching this far.
