Snapshots of sky

By Annette Marie Hyder

(taken in April)

a skirt of birds

scatters
goosed by the wind

(taken in June)

crisp white cloud blouse

slips off blue shoulders
of summer sky

(taken in September)

those are not birds flying
crazily through the air
but leaves

(taken in January)

I can’t see the color
of the sky’s shoulders today —
she is clothed in too many layers
