Sky Talk

The sky leaned down, put its mouth to my ear,
and whispered its subtle sky secret.

The message itself was familiar by now,
no translated subtitles were required.

When our ancient home beckons, who among us
can refuse its request to stop what we’re doing and listen?

There is a gap between the moment of disillusionment
and the moment of awakening – it is filled with sky.

It’s the place the finger points to, where no human words apply.

If I were to travel across the land, either on foot or by the wheel,
I could string together borrowed words and phrases to describe
my overland adventures, for the sake of all who seek to know.

However, if I crossed that border between the earth and sky,
I would be in a country where no language is necessary.

Because I too am a water being, the clouds
would need no awkward introduction.

They would recognize me as one of their own,
without having to rely on imagination.

Together, we’d silently drift over the dry expanse, happy
with no destination — just pure sky water awaiting its time
to pour down and nourish the thousand thirsty things below.

The timeless sky itself would remain unmoved,
pregnant with celestial sky secrets.

It will remain in place to witness a world
in the midst of its last mass extinction.

    It remains difficult for me to believe that homo sapien sapien could have evolved naturally surrounded by such a cooperative community of beings. Could it really be that we have been genetically altered as an experimental proving ground by an alien race? It seems that our enoughness gene has been extracted.

      That’s a theory that is gaining adherents, Sky! Some say we are a product of many races’ intervention over the centuries, and that well may be true. Some claim that our DNA has been restricted to the point that we are unable to access the higher frequencies, but that this limitation is changing now, and we will soon be entering a new golden age of consciousness. There are certainly a lot of opinions these days on that subject! 😉
