Indigo Sky

Lightning by Suvro Datta/

The lightning flashing

best laid plans crashing

under a blackened sky.

The thunder rolling

random thoughts scrolling

under an indigo sky.



Energy by dan/

A feeling of dread

of things left unsaid

under a dark grey sky.

Old feelings lamented

my past cemented

under a pale grey sky.



Beautiful Sea And Blue Sky by tungphoto/

The tide still pulling

the future I’m mulling

under a brightening sky.

My spirit ignited

refusing to be blighted

under a cerulean sky.

I wanted to say: ‘The thunder rolling, random thoughts extolling’, but after checking my grammar found the meaning would be incorrect?  Advice welcomed as it’s the word I wanted to use, the word that felt right (not ‘scrolling’)!  🙂

    • Thanks for that, ‘scrolling’ it is then! There was a thunder storm going on and the poem just started going through my head … although I don’t think I captured the ‘mind’ version quite the same, which is always much better I think (but can never be remembered quickly enough after grabbing pen/paper) 🙂
