Eyes to the sky

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.

~Emily Dickinson


If the skies fall, one may hope to catch larks. 
~Francois Rabelais

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

refusing domestication -
more world that ours high

way crossed - no looking up
into its face without looking

down
where no faces of us

match - call each
heaven by a lover's

name & not one
showers

regrets for missing
storm warnings

of intermittent
transformations
