Thanksgiving Sky

The sun
unaware of man’s turmoil
Of Paris, Brussels, Mali
Penetrates sky
Flaunts brilliance
Spreads joyful colors
Vibrates
bold
defiant,
lushly
lavender,
roars
red

burns
orange
yells
yellow
Celebrates
The end of the day
Before night turns black
As the world prays
For tomorrow
And mourns
As I mourn
with sorrow
John’s passing.
