Aerosol Archaeopteryx

Ephemeral denizen of the dawn
Emblazoned on the waking
An aerosol archaeopteryx
Captured for a twinkling
On the heavens

Feathers and ancient bones
Silhouetted in the tracks of the sky
Like footprints in the new-fallen snow
Darkening blue where they tread

Rimmed with yellow, orange, purples
And their spectra
Before the blue
Flying still
Across the dome
