the open sky by foureyes the open sky by foureyes
xxannaxx xxannaxx shared this poem with me, I'm honored to feature it with my pic.
She has the same passion for the sky as I do,
...her words have the beauty of one thousand photos !
Sushanna is an amazing poet,
...her work has immense beauty !

The Open Sky

You ripple, you oscillate; you wave,
And crash into my body only to be expelled through my heart like bats fleeing from a cave.
You hold on tight, you give; and you take away,
Amidst the covert transition from night to day.
You are so beautiful that looking at you consumes my mind
with anxiety and strange relief,
The butterflies inside my brain perch quietly only when I am not looking at you in disbelief.
Sometimes I look upon you and wonder if heaven is on Earth; you are my window into the vast unknown,
Only you can bring me solace when you are overcast and you are a daily reminder that I am not alone.
You are the sky, you are the celestial getaway for the mind; you are the center of my life,
You are the moody, whimsical husband and I am the devoted, loving wife.
Because of you the world is alive; every afternoon I worship the color of your skin,
Dark blue above me and deep, deep orange and pink on the horizon.
The sun and the clouds come to together to pay homage and refract sweet light,
After the rain has fallen and the weary clouds go about their business, the setting sun is the most beautiful sight.
When you are black, you are fine--the stars twinkle when they weep,
And when you are blue, you are such a calming force--the butterflies in my head go right to sleep.
When you are sad, the sun loses the will to shine as grey clouds gather and consume,
Ice cold tears fall one after the other and in the distance lightning and silent flashes ominously loom.
When you are hurt, your blood flows thick and quickly across your pink and purple flesh; the sky seems like it is on fire,
And I love it when you are hurting--I want to see the flames go higher and higher.
You are the often ignored beauty; not enough people look up to see what I see,
You are magnificent, beautiful, and are just like me...

This is gorgeous! Where was this taken?
mokemono Featured By Owner May 22, 2008
Absolutely beautiful. Seeing colors like that in the sky reminds me of Arizona for some reason, which also reminds me of my grandma who passed away two years ago.

The sky just looks so calming. When I look at it enough, I can almost see figures running in the clouds as well as a heart. The darker clouds on the tallest one looks like hair on another figure.

In any case, awsome job, I love this. ^_^

The photo is beautiful, and the poem is beautiful.

"You are the often ignored beauty; not enough people look up to see what I see,"

The sky is too often ignored, it's like the bastard child with a talent unseen. The clouds look almost heavenly.
