Here’s the entry:
Earth Day 2014 –
The Sky Has Fallen
When our grasp exceeds our reach
There is no gate we dare not open—
The match in the fist raised
Against the firmament.
When the sky falls
It falls in Fire—
The inferno bolts from our hand.
It doesn’t matter—
The horse is gone.
We’ve unshut the door.
Fire bringer, light bearer—
We discover we lit our body on fire.
Against the incandescence of loss,
We see at last
Our feet burning on the earth.
powerfull words of overstanding from the heart-thank you Melody
Great poem. A pleasure to read. Hard to swallow. fdr
