    Sky of Blue

    A cloudless azure sky
    Is hanging over my head.
    A clear sky, lit by the sun,
    As deep as the ocean.
    It is also hanging over the trees,
    Over the buildings on the hills;
    My gaze reflects its clarity
    As well as its ethereal quality.
    Am I going to sink into that
    Sky of blue, where, at night,
    The moon and stars navigate
    On imperceptible dark waves?
    The celestial Dome is a mystifying
    Space to which my soul gravitates
    Up and down, between Earth and sky,
    Pretending to be a bird or a butterfly...
