in the calm and quiet
whitewashed sky
lies a subtle beauty

dialed down colours
a soft and modest glow
no longer neon
no longer flamboyant

a wrinkled fabric
drapes over the sky
folded with wisdom
from infinite age

thousands of dusks and dawns
have exhausted the old canvas
gone are the vibrant colours
in place
a pale perfection

Oh man, this was so hard to write. I don’t think it ties in completely with ‘quiescent’, but I guess if you twist it around enough, it focuses on how old the earth is, so it’s gone into hibernation (and lazy with the brilliant colours). I had a lot to say but today’s one of those days where I just can’t find the words.
