The Language of Air

Let the sky roar all around
in its silence of
starlight and leaves

Blue is the only comfort now
that blue which is the color of
air so deep
you cannot see to the
bottom of it

Stars have been
watching us through it
for light years

Parrot wings speaking
the language of air
are the only words
