“Up on High” – Bicutan, 06 November 2015

wistfully

looking up

into a

sky

bright blue

dotted with

clouds,

knowing that

we both

roam

‘neath the

same sky

but kept

apart

by distance

by land

by water.

 

and i

shake my

fist

at the

smiling sun

cursing its

brightness,

how it

mocks

the darkness

that envelops

me.

 

and i

pray

for colder

winds

and skies

made grey

and rain

pattering

around me,

knowing

as i

do:

the cold

of what

passes for

winter

in these

isles

will bring

you home.
