#22 the perfect shade of blue (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
look to the sky--
here it is light
and here again,
it is dark.
within itself
it is not itself.

chasing after
the perfect shade of blue
i've dropped dizzied,
with a crooked neck,
and back to where i began.

what accomplishment is there
in chasing yourself?

the closer you come
the further you go
from the fig tree, so patiently
it waits beneath.
