The Unseen Sky


The sky is a canvas of blue

Enclosing the Earth

Pulled taut by the horizon

As nature paints along a curved, cerulean surface

With wide brushstrokes of wind and water

A transitory swirling of wavering awe

Quickly burned away by the sun


An overcast of beauty somehow hidden

Lingering above bouncing heads

Their faces down

Eyes aglow with artificial light

Beneath the unseen painted sky
