Super Sighs Me



Splash some
Gold-
en
Glitter on me
And sea
Let tanger-
ine streak
And lavender play
Lay-
ers
Between a nimble cumulus
And horiz-
on
Fill sun
With de-
light
Expand to
Full width and height
Bright
Yellow balloon
On fire
In-
spire
Swell and exhale
'Cuz as you know
In this show
Sighs
Matter

Offered for Alan's prompt at poetryjaam.blogspot.com, to write about sunsets. One of my very favorite things!  Hope to add a photo later.  Happy Sunsets everyone :-)

    1. Hi Susan! Thank you! I was happy when I came up with that, every now and then the muse gives me a giggle :-) (I was really torn, I wanted to put "sighs matters" but that really isn't proper grammar...it's the laughter that counts!
