Sky Sketchers


Sky sketches:

Living lines

Tracing history through thin air.



Reaching ever higher

Every further;

Naked ambition.




Reaching out,

Branching, stretching,

Multiplying opportunities and

Filling empty space with

Proliferating life.



Ever strong

Dancing in the wind,

Hiding behind fog,

Bending under snow,

Shivering beneath silvery coats of ice;

 yet lithe and limber.



Timber dream catcher, Sun catcher;

Reflecting first golden rays of sun

and last, warming the winter sky.



Living web,

Growing thicker with each passing season;

Gnarly, twisted, infested with life:

Sky sketchers.
