In the living blue

Falling backwards through the living blue,
staring way back up above the leaves.
Catch my soul between the vast, the tranquil,
I can hear the air as it rushes by.
Beneath waves in a cloud spun sea,
the emerging light storm wakes up my dreams.
As my mind wanders in the places I’ve lived,
falling slow until I sink beneath the earth.
Even though I can still see the sky,
Where the roots be as strong as the branches above.
Reaching out from the foundations deep below,
I reach up to start the climb once again.
For each more branches growing everyday,
maybe I’ll find one day the right one soon.
To share, to take me a little closer to the tranquil blue,
Be here to touch the sky, the sky so far up above
Sitting on a branch, waiting for another one…
