Ardent Blue

All night it has been
open to heavenly starlight,
but now, no longer
a portal, the morning sky
begins to take shape.
Hardening into boundaries,
still black before azure,
its surface already shows
the imprint of trespass;
a recent red-eye flight has
left a faded vapor
trail across its chalkboard.
Trees seem at risk
of crumpling beneath this
majestic dark weight.
But before Chicken Little
can raise an alarm,
with a faint blushing exhale,
dawn’s ardent blue
softens the mass transparent.
