Blue Sky Invasion

Rainbows vanish as showers pass.

On slabs of sun fired heat,

ghosts of seasons dissipate,

vanishing in mist.

Pale fingers reach upward

for breezes to cast them aside

for a blue sky invasion.

Trifextra: Week fifty-nine challenge is a photo for inspiration. A little creative writing in 33 words.

Any talk of rainbows requires the most amazing version of Over the Rainbow sung by Eva Cassidy. A singer who passed far too soon. Her contribution to music is truly a gift. If you haven’t listened to her music. You should. Go. Listen. Now.

      Meee too! We’ve had a few wonderful days teasing us with the potential of summer. Unfortunately, the reality is we have some of our biggest snow storms between March and the end of May…sooo.

    Blue sky invasion, huh? Sounds lovely, if there are wildflowers to see, too!

      I can’t wait for my annual trip to the mountains to witness the explosion of mountain lupine and other wild flowers.


  9. The imagery was very pretty. I am “so much to choose from” or I cannot post on wordpress without a blog I retired awhile back. A little competition problem between the freebies. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoy meeting people through the competitions.


  10. Love the phrasing here. Sun-fired heat. Blue sky invasion.
