A Handful of Sky

Enormous, looming, blue and beautiful
The sky is emblazoned with your soul-print.
I am consumed with an impulse to steal a handful
Lock it away.
It boasts the power of the billion stars
Burning so fiercely in this crisp fistful of nothing I’m clutching so tightly
That shows me you.
Open my hands; hear the whisper
Of a journey never begun.
It’s hidden in the bright shadows of your eyes
Exploding in the vastness of darkened skies.
Clouds, stars, air and rain …
Heaven and infinity.
I stretch out my hands, touch my fingers to a space you’ll never abandon but will always
Avoid.

A Handful of Sky
