Skywatch Friday: Learning Colors with Time

Learn colors with time:
Black dawn adds white
Day becomes blue,
Adds yellow
Becomes the middle of everything and green,
Eternally green,
Dissolves into night:
Purple, then
Black again.
Add white....

(I was out for a walk early on Monday morning. I started out in the dim light of a cloudy sky; within an hour the sky was heavenly blue and alive. It occurred to me that time and color unfold together.)

    Sandy I must tell you what a lovely and thought provoking poem this is. I can not find your Haiku on Frost. Maybe you did not do one. In any case, this poem is just breathtaking. I am so glad I stopped by.
