Morning skyline

Morning skyline

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

Wash-up concrete sardines
wishing for breathing space;
they try to tickle the sky,
but no sound it makes

Renegade clouds try to color
the misty horizon,
but they fail.
The coastguard wakes up
sleepy, rebellious waves
but they wished that they worked
the late shift.

A lonely tower
jealously eyes
an arrogant sky-scraper - 
their glances getting lost
in mid-morning traffic.

The sky smiles, eventually - 
crimson tainted sunlight
sighs that morning is gone - 
until tomorrow.
