Capturing The Sky

A swath of orange
a masterstroke
across the morning March sky

A splash of colour
to replace the static slumber
of a hard winter

What temptation lies on the horizon?
How will this inform a dull day
shuffling papers
in rehearsed routine?

I scramble to absorb
that fading hue,
stashing the embers
to hold deep inside

To spark within my stride
a spring in defeated steps

If I can radiate a fraction of it,
I will shine it towards your dark corners.
