I share the sky with you

February 28, 2011

In an open field
I pull down the night sky
and wrap it around me.
__________

The sky un-paints itself
as twilight
takes hold.
__________

Twilight’s fingers
zip up
day’s light.
__________

Clouds drift
like snow
against blue walls.
__________

Star-strewn canvas
I only see the patterns
..the brushstrokes..
when I close
my eyes.
__________

On tiptoes I reach up
to touch a vapour trail
to take me
to you
half a sky away.
__________

Pockets full of stars
I hold up my hands
to the night sky.
__________

Polaroid sky
the clouds are still
wet.
__________

Slate sky
chalk clouds
dust in my hair.
__________

The unbearable beauty
of the blue sky
makes
time
stop.
__________

I make a wish
look up at the sky
and blow out the stars.
__________

Sticking stars
on night’s
velvet velcro.
__________

Church steeples
puncture
a lowering sky.
__________

Hole in the night sky
stoppered by
a full moon.
__________

Tear-streaked sky
March rain
tastes salty
on my
lips.
