Sky Bones

They do not rot
For they are immortal
Untouchable
Creatures
They can be the deepest
Dark if you find yourself
Caught under a
Blanket of
Ominous
Bellowing
Nimbus bones
They can be the most brilliant
Of light
Gleaming
Pure
Fading
Fluffy and sweet
Cumulus skulls
That sing and dance
Drifting contentedly
About the ruby orange
Sun
Sharp
Unpredictable
Thin
Wisps
Zipping here and
There
Like fragile
Cirrus
Finger bones
Made bold in
Contrast with
A stark
Grey blue
Sky
Sporadically placed
Columns
Spiraling
Twisting in a
Single line
Like
Vertebrae
Spinning
Vicious
Powerful
Funnels of
Destruction
Splintered
Leg bones
The sky decides to
Grace the earth it
Peacefully
Reigns above
Gifting it with
Destruction
Merely glimpse
Upwards
To observe the
Anatomy of the
Sky
As its lightning
Illuminates its
Secrets
As its thunder
Summons
The
Legendary
Sky bones
Plentiful in
Number
And
Beauty and above all
Never to be
Broken
