Sky is barren
both lonely and windswept
until they assent
to replenish and nourish themselves.
They dance gracefully through their labor.
Sky grabs his brush,
splashing the blank day with azure blue
blazing sun, downy clouds
painting the empty night with deep violets and sapphires
luminous moon, twinkling stars.
Grass sprouts over dirt and dust
oceans cuddle into hollowed ground,
Earth takes her pencil,
colors her meadows wheaten gold,
shades her seas prussian blue.
Life opens their eyes
born from their slumber long awaiting
awakened to see magnificence.
Earth descends into Sky's arms,
trees soaking up the sun.
gentle breezes nudging clouds.
moon pulling ocean waves.
They are together as one
She couldn't be Herself with Him
He couldn't be Himself without Her.
Earth and Sky
dancing through the trees and stars,
graceful as the wind,
together as one.
