the sky is falling by Matthew Daley

the sky is falling
Matthew Daley

it was the birds first
fallen some walking
till they forgot direction

trees lost how
to feed and breathe
then their whispered exhales

the sun begged forgiveness
before giving up
after giving out

flowers forgot the wind
hiding out of sight
of the out of minds

those still standing
pull slow this hospice
around their lungs

darkness promises new
again with small rain
crying stained memory
