lazy sky

the childless fisherman by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

lazy sky

a solitary white-sailed boat strolls by
on a silent still-born breeze
late afternoon clouds are tainted in blood
looking awkward and ill at ease

palm trees silhouette on a lazy sky
surprised by the colour of the night
shadows distressed by the smiling moon
the trembling darkness is scourged by the light

relaxed on the forbidden jetty
with its bold no entry sign
the childless fisherman eyes the waves
contemplates wryly the end of his line

grass painted green by autumn deluge
dog paused for news beside the stream
tumbling angrily under the bridge
all these belong in the insomniac’s dream

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
