226. Glaze 

I took the above photo at a music festival I visited last week. The view of the main stage over the waterway between the city and the island lake, from the second stage residing on the island, was breathtaking. Submissive to the omnipresent glaze of gold and blue that cast dimmed light over the city, the eponymous skyline stood seemingly still; although closer inspection would reveal the many tracks that its inhabitants would leave on its face with every passing moment. I wrote this haiku about the sky, and it’s ability to register great emotion within me.

Canvas pure of sin,

Casting glow on all within, 

Life’s so tawdry bowl.
