‘Where Does the Sky Begin or End?’ and Other Poetry by Sierra July The Society March 10, 2014 Beauty, Poetry 1 Comment Where Does the Sky Begin or End? Where does the sky begin or end? The sea above, the stars attend? Burn bright, a galaxy anew Not in the sky we see so blue Could paint a line up to the moon Hear melody of nighttime tune Look up into the midnight black Then wouldst I say I’m back on track? Comets, stardust, fly overhead Below, the creatures drift to bed Meteor metal reflects light Above, there’s not a soul in sight. Endless Blue Somewhere blossoms soak up the spring sunshine, While my skin absorbs salty ocean brine. A good day is on the weather forecast, But how much bad can happiness outlast? Crabs scuttle across sand, fish make a splash, Still I suffer from misfortune whiplash, Can’t get my mind off nature’s heinous crimes, Why chaos strikes at inopportune times. White seagulls squeak as they sail overhead, Matching the clouds in their endless blue bed. It’s when you stare up at infinite blue, The world no longer seems out to get you. Sierra July is a poet living in Florida.
