The morning sky is bluer than blue
No clouds anywhere to block the sun
The ocean took on the celestial hue
And the far hills the color of cyan!
 
Sadly, an east wind rallies at noon
And drags dark nimbus clouds along
All the trees sway; no one’s immune
Birds and crickets cease their song...
 
The afternoon sky is greyer than grey
Layers of leaden clouds rule heaven
Zeus, thunder and lightning did obey
And it seems the world is unforgiven!
 
Thus, the day of a lovely sunset bereft
No vermillion hues to decorate the sky
The passage into night, all that’s left
And the universe gives a plaintive sigh
 
The midnight sky is blacker than black
Dark rain clouds hide the moon and stars
Gone, the constellations of the zodiac
Gloom envelopes all in the witching hours
 
Lo! As dawn comes, a wind from the west
Pushes the stubborn raven clouds away
The black velvet skies immensely blest,
As points of light appear in random array
 
And so, the morning sky is bluer than blue
To augur the beginning of a glorious day
A cycle complete, another starts anew
Kinder perhaps, all creatures hope and pray!

Very nice. A beautiful blue sky is truly a wonderous sight, but it can as you say change so quickly, but we can always look foward to another to make us all feel better.

Thanks for liking Brod.

Indeed, the West Wind is a benign gentle wind. In European tradition, it has usually been considered the mildest and most favorable of the directional winds. In Greek mythology, Zephyrus was the personification of the west wind and the bringer of light spring and early summer breezes; his Roman equivalent was Favonius (hence the adjective favonian, pertaining to the west wind). In the myth of Cupid and Psyche, Zephyrus was the attendant of Cupid, who brought Psyche to his master's palace.

@Vic: Fascinating Immortals and Mortals of antiquity. Primordial, Titans and Olympians-Chronos, Aether and Chaos...to the three brothers Zeus, Hades, Poseidon and their sisters and their consorts, siblings incestous as well and their offsprings down the line through time souls immortal reincarnated many times over to artists of all disciplines to today not the least of whom are the lyrical dreamers extolling their mythical supernatural adventures
like us.

I like to believe that we in this blog/site and other similar sites are an extension of this mythical deities. Ha! What a Halloween thought! :-))
