Below a Shadowless Sky

snow dancing in shivering shifts

warming to rain it races away

below a shadowless sky

he wonders often what it could be

why the cloud’s tears soften suddenly

while peeking through a smoky haze

his pockmarked face looks quiet

dead to some just dust settling

he rarely smiles or ponders

but his heart rises radiantly

no matter his utter loneliness

and feels time rolling by

just a slow pass glimmering

across a deep crashing sea

brushing the shoulder’s of lovers
