These Skies Today…

PoeticBloomings Poet Gary R. Ferris provides today’s inspiration with his poem: Peaceful Summer Day “Hook into a word, a line or a thought to expand upon, and write your new poem!”


are hypnotically clear
not even a contrail
smears the sheer blue
in the Appalachians
where elms, poplar, and ash
shin up the sides
in a leafy frame of green,
where the wren and jay
and the chickadee convene
to sing their delight in the day.
Oh, pellucid skies, to be alive
and cognizant of the opulent
grace of God.
