Sky Light

You
and I
we build
a scaffolding
of
sighs
reaching to
the closer
clouds

our fears
are not
of flying
but of
falling

back
to earth
with those
who go about
their lives

as if
the sky
was only

empty

as if
it did
not contain
wonders

as if
it was not
the threshold to

heaven

  1. This is just a lovely poem, Mary. It certainly describes new love, but hopefully older love as well–the vision of sky high is just great, and the fear of falling so cleverly and aptly stated. Thanks. k.
