The Dawn Zone

The purple mountain majesties

Are bleeding in the sky

A violet spreading

Across the dawn

.

The houses

Inky black against that sky

With bird flocks clustered

Flapping like leaves in wind

Making them appear

The color of beach palms at sunset

.

Past them

The trees stand tall

Branches arms up

Like waiters serving plates

Garnished with

The fat of the sky

.

Leaves from the trees

Soaring on a late autumn wind

Alight in the sky

Becoming the sun

And all

Is as it should be
