the sky is too big

my voice leaps breathless, the drone
of a thousand wings, flutters, prayers
for life.  do you listen?

in moments I am jealous of such desire,
while you shudder to earth beneath the
impressions of a hundred unkind whispers.

for now, you let the openness act as a wall.

from here, I am steady with life for your word.

children, parents, these are masks,
worries, fears, mere reflections of
missing you, ripples within wondering.
 
 
I will let the sky be too big.
 
 
I will let breezes prowl across the open spaces.
