Dark New Day

Bright orange,

Sparkling white,

Pale blue,

Tan and gold,

Soft peach.

A chance at a new day,

But heavy, black clouds

Overwhelm all

Possibilities.

What will crash today?

How twisted

Can it be?

    “Tan and gold,
    Soft peach.
    A chance at a new day,”

    “What will crash today?
    How twisted
    Can it be?”
