letter to the sky

earth’s ceiling
used to be a
floating sea where

boats careen so
free. until, like
autumn leaves, millions
are dead. tiny
things inhaled-


up like daffodils
of baby spring
baiting for
bees. unzip the

clouds. allow hellos
to happen

  1. Wow, Rosema – this poem kinda makes me feel foolish because I don’t feel like I understand it – it feels like a surrealist poem to me… like if Salvador Dalí were a poet, this would be the kind of poem he’d write 🙂
