The Whole Horizon

Tonight, I watched the pink ring, all around
The way the ring deepened to navy below
Night sneaking up on us
The way the pink faded to turquoise above
Daytime slow to give up
The scant clouds relent, darkening 
The tired sun flares and sinks, stealing the color
The ring rolls away.

Uneasy sky

This morning, uneasy gray sky,
Last night's rain in puddles,
Littered with debris;
Suddenly the sun winks,
A slim blue rent 
In the clouds
Can the storm finally end?
