glittering gloom

on a gloomy and windy day
I need an apprentice
(for what you may ask)
someone has to
paint stars in to the gloom, 
fill it with glitters;
rewind the wind
to let it flow above
so as to reach the sky
and make it peerless

"I will towel the ground,
let that stranger watch me,
little knowing he is my apprentice"

Love the idea of rewinding the wind and letting the painting show after the curtain of gloom opens... beautiful imagery!

Lovely poem and wonderful lines

"paint stars in to the gloom,
fill it with glitters
to rewind the wind
to let it flow above
to reach the sky"

I like the thought of painting stars in gloom. I must remember that next time I feel the gloom setting in. Make it glitter with stars. Beautiful.

Thanks for the visit and the encouragement.
