There was a great early morning sky spectacular over Leeds this morning, featuring planets, stars, sunrise, iridescent lights and more:
- Venus and other celestial objects in a clear dark sky, with the first signs of light visible in orange and blue on the eastern horizon.
- a big cloud lit up like a big pink jelly just before sunrise
- and iridescent lights in a thin horizon cloud after the sunrise.
Just before the sunrise, the sun was lighting up planes flying over the treetop horizon, and making them look rather good. It inspired this poem, which retreads some previous Marc Latham fm poems, but also has some originality.
Dawn Cinderellas Pink Candy Dance
heavy metal hulks
noisy and cumbersome
when grounded become
sailing over sunrise
silent and sleek
fade fusing fandango

Yes, Marc, there have been great sunrises, so good to use one as inspiration. Strangely, I was only reading about a flamingo earlier today on a Pembrokeshire birding blog …
Thank you for posting my thoughts on palindrome poems …
Thanks Caroline, and for the link and your piece too. Gave the form and site a great lift.
