Blanket of Hope (Poem 223)

In the sky, fragile 
beauty, a shimmering 
memory transformed
by magical hues,
their shivering petals 
rustle a scarce-heard 
song of blooming 
dawn and sunset glow,
a blanket of hope, drawn
around the fretful fallen 
and the world, lost 
in heedless slumber 
around them
