Big Skies Over the Moor

Light box of the heavens
A Rembrandt sky
Painted and layered
An artist’s eye
Heaven drawn to earth
Held above
Shadows below
Clouds that grow
Flat lines drawn in swathes of grey 
Threaten a warning given this day
Mist shrouds the moor
To the valley floor
Veiled and heavy
The clouds bear down.
A sweep of the brush
A stain of blue
Palette of colour
Transition of hue
Big skies and wide
Stretch across
This Dartmoor fell
Visual storytelling
Lines withheld
Breathtaking views
To hold in the eye
Outstretched hands
Cannot hold this sky .
