Foreign Sky

Foreign Sky

written by: Ricky Hawthorne



I can’t remember snow
And frosted trees
From Autumn’s tow
Cacophony of summer woe
Its crimson costumed spy
Betrays this foreign sky

One simple act of grace
Its feather face
That waned and set the heart apace
But can’t remember why
Recall their foreign sky

Voices choired in tears
Tinsel tongues
Hymnal ears
Sugar coated never years
A box of Chocolate lies
That rots our foreign sky

A wilderness of seams
At butter dreams
Blurred, lacklustre, nowhere schemes
Nailed fast and hoisted high
Against that foreign sky
