We Chalk-Marks

I took this sunset picture from my balcony tonight. Many thoughts went through my mind today, including our indelible drive as Americans to keep pressing on. These contrails from airpanes that had passed inspired me. I hope they inspire you.

Submitted to ABC Wedesday for the letter I, which means INDELIBLE to me today. Despite the Impermanence of these contrails, they bring Inspiration.



 















We chalk-marks cross the
Bluest skies, we gleam, dissolve
Leave pretty trails.

I like to see the contrails against a blue sky and sometimes if I'm feeling practical rather than poetic judge how much water is in the air.
