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...
