Scene: Draining the Sky

[Begin scene]

A dark sky turns blue as the dawn grows brighter from the rising sun…

The view broken by outreaching branches leafless, bare…

Stark against the early dawn sky the branches look like a system of rivers and streams, draining the night from the sky, unveiling the blue once hidden within…

A tree prepared to stand brave through the coming cold winds that might otherwise rend it from the earth.
