Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 47 – #Haiku #Tanka #Haibun: Shadow & Light

dark-dawn

sun peeks through violet sky
we look at it and wonder why
it looks so peaceful we can fly
against the velvety sky stood in shadow the skyline
indigo clouds cover up the first stars that might shine
the chill of the light and a promise of a night divine
trees on the sides that go bold
faded highway that lay cold
all was dark as we strolled
we’re on our way home
world so monochrome
and we say shalom
till we meet again
it was nice to ken
time to say amen*
