She is rum
-bled by this whisky sky,
the way the earth is shaken
by storm, the tumbled blur
of clouds. Call her vesper,
evening star
skydragon waiting;
wayward one,
kamikaze sun.

    Nice view of Venus which I assume the “evening star” refers to. I can also see her likened to a “skydragon” or “kamikaze sun”.

  5. Glenn Buttkus says:

    Nice nod to Venus as Valentines gather in the wings. You had me too at /skydragon/. Sorry that my piece exceeds 33 words; smile.

    I love the way these lines sound together:

    “skydragon waiting;
    wayward one”

    LOVE the title….and the placement of words in the first two lines. Ending with the kamikaze sun — brilliant! 🙂

    kamikaze sun.

    The Sun that ensures life on earth had better not go on a kamikaze spree or we are all done for too!

    thing.. storms breaKing
    out everywhere
    in the life
    of a day
    and the sky
    bore eggs oF LiGht
    with a kiss of an ‘ugly’ witch..;)

    a picture too..

    have a
    to reLate..;)

    Love your description of Venus. She is a lady-in-waiting and will be tonic to winter-weary eyes. The cloudy skies have hidden her brightness for many moons in my neck of the woods.
