A hole in the sky

There’s a hole in the sky

Where the light pokes through

Where white cotton clouds

Move softly, silently

Confusing the eye

Diffusing the view


Whilst in contradiction

The dark grey, the white and the black

Mix, match, meld and obscure

Everything within sight


Every now and then a snapshot

Reveals a pocket of the deepest blue

As if trying to escape

Attempting to overcome

 All that holds it back


In contrast the black 

An ominous spectre

Hangs on

Lurking and clinging

 Thunderous in its intent

 Threatening to release

Its battle hardened deluge

Before gliding, sliding, slinking off

At the beckoning of another night

◄ A card from home

Hi Martin, happy new year, great to hear you like my tribute to Alan Henning, I was moved to write something, we need more of him.

Enjoyed reading your Hole in the Sky, found myself dreaming away until the contrast of the dark to the light, nice one, cheers Jeff
