Nobody sees (an object)….really.
To see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
                          -Georgia O’Keefe


As I step out
The piercing clarity
Of blue

Drags my eyes upward
Squeezes my soul
Shakes me
Says look you fool
See my greatness
Feel the immensity
Hanging over you

Softly tumbling white
Spreads wider
than my mortal eyes
across the endless sapphire

Grabs the breath
from my lungs
they ache from the beauty



Sky Haiku:

fierce blue drags eyes up
Where white dances endlessly
wider than eyes see
