October Sky

And not the movie either [though it's a good movie].

October Sky
by: the one and only me

The wind blows my hair as I look up
It's chill reminding me that autumn is here
Despite the sunshine that fills this October sky
That makes the blue sky of summer seem pale
The warmth of the sun is comforting
As it reflects off the peaks of towering clouds
Whose whiteness rests in stark contrast with the dark underneath
Pushing my hair back I can only stand in awe
And marvel at this beauty
That stands apart from the rest of time
In this moment I rest
Thinking neither of yesterday nor of tomorrow
Only of this eternal moment
As for me, time stands still

And to spoil it all for you - this was inspired by a sunshiney/cloudy day earlier this weak, before it actually turned to October....but I thought October Sky sounded better than a September sky. LOL.

But September Sky is alliterative! Nice, either way :)
