Speak to Me of the Sky
speak to me of the sky

tell me what the stars mean
when they whisper to you
while you sleep beneath them

how the sun
in its
swooping
streaking
scorching
journey
makes you dizzy at heart

tell me the colors that bleed
as it gouges out the horizon
and burrows its way to the other side
nestles there

and is born again
in fire and blood
tell me how it screams

give me the words
that scatter
across the dome of your mind
and paint it in shades
that cannot be found in a brush

I am miles
and miles
from where you are
looking at the same sky

but I see it through the warped glass
of different eyes

so tell me about your sky
