the sky is only sky

far across the universe, can anyone hear
our lonely planet’s plaintive cry
as we look up at the stars at night
and wonder if the sky is only sky?

perhaps, now is the time to broaden our horizons
and to try to think outside of the box
before we are wrapped in the fabric of space-time
and trapped watching the ticking of our clocks

    This was the title from an old college poem and started with some lines that I took out of “august sky“. There was so little of the original left, that I categorized this as a new poem for the blog. Excuse me while I go wind up all my clocks.

    Good to have you back. Don’t bother with the clocks:)
