The Sky



The Sky


The sky is as near

as the warm place

you keep in your

heart for family

yet as distant and

cold as the Milkyway.

It is ever-changing—

hour by hour and

cloud by cloud—

yet changeless in

constancy. The

palatial expanse

above the earth is as

faithful as gravity

yet as indifferent

and random as a

hurricane. Barring

the Holy Script,

the sky remains

our most abstract

and concrete

evidence of heaven.
