Gray Sky

Ninety Eight 3/10/16

This is the first time I’m sending out one my own poems, because the sky is so beautifully gray now and this poem came out of my eyes! I listened to this song the entire time I wrote this poem, and I highly recommend listening to it while reading this poem, or any other time really!

Zero
Gray Sky

The sky out of the window is so beautifully gray right now.
I shall like to take my heart out and burry it under the tall California trees of a thousand variety
I shall like to take a piece of gray cloud and put it where my heart used to be
and then my eyes will start to rain
my soul will flood
and storm will shake my brain
and lightnings will come out my finger tips
my soul a river, flooding
my eyes dark skies, raining
my skin brown earth, soaking
my mind a madhouse, dancing wet under the rain crying
The sky out of the window is so beautifully gray right now.
and soon it will rain and rain and rain
I shall like to lay on damp earth naked
I shall like to cover myself with a blanket of gray clouds

I see you coming though the moving branches
through each trembling leaf
I feel you coming through the wind, touching my face
you are coming with a thousand sun in your eyes
you are coming from far
I tell you,
if you are coming to visit me
come gently
I have been sleeping under this cloud a thousand years now
come gently so that the sleeping grass’ sleep is not interrupted
if you are coming to visit me
please come gently so that the metaphors won’t break

The sky is so beautifully gray now..
And I shall like you to read me poems of the thousand years old tree
and a poem of a madman who now has a tiny house in the cloud islands
and a poem of a man who is made of fire and water
Read me the poems
And I shall lay on the damp earth under the tall trees,
where my heart is buried.
Gray clouds will be my blanket, green moss my pillow, and the earth, the whole planet my bed..
You will sit by my bed
The sky is beautifully gray now,
And let’s let our eyes cry a thousand rain
let’s not be bothered with rules of the universe
let’s not care about money or the future
let us be soft, our voices tender
Let’s put on an untitled, unknown, wordless song from Latin America
Let’s eat pieces of cloud
The sky is beautifully gray now
and I shall like to take a piece of it
and I shall like to put it in my mouth and swallow it
letting it dissolve in my mouth like a dream
And I will taste the rain
And I will taste the color gray
And I will taste you
Skye is beautifully gray now
and I have been waiting for this sky for a thousand years now
My skin dry
My eyes dry
My soul dry
My mouth dry
The sky is beautifully gray now
And heavy rains are going to fall down
It will rain cats and dogs
It will rain lovers
and Mothers
and Fathers
and Sisters
and Brothers
It will rain mercy
It will rain a thousand blessings
It will rain on me
It will rain in me
It will rain from me
But the sky is beautifully gray for now.
