Artist's Description

light in the sky burning my eye
land turns black from its burning attack
last light laughs as I strain to see
night claims the sky
telling me

fire in the sky
burns my eye

melting smoke of black can obscure
the on slot of earth that night provides
can still come to coax
this daily/nightly hoax

cooking the sky like burning toast
I see my eye from coast to coast

another kind of time, when
things were so different
No Earth, no Sun if you forgive the pun

No planets, no stars,
no minds like ours
with eyes that see
what fire does to me

sets me free to think
of a time oh so long ago

when there was no time
no gravity
no rhyme

No space , no distance
no numbers , no words
no books or looks from Google friends to text you
no fashion or passion from any incoming eye
to tell you about the passion in the sky

So is it real? or just a lie?
Was there a time, before time?
Before even the black
when fire burns the sky

in the flash of an instant
I tell you no lie

there once was a moment

Fire Was the Sky
