Shaken Skies

It was a grizzly sky indeed
So dull and drab
The Kind, that reminds you of a
Middle aged mistress, deeply in despair
Puffing up a ballooned pout.
Who is casting ash over
Our azureous canopy?
From where does this dark fleece
Suddenly loom over the
cerulean spread of our
Feigned serenity and repose?
No tiny limbs
No more li’l birds
Nowhere a li’l star even
Such troubled and crumbled this sky of mine now

Ah ashes,
The relics of severance.
Swaying images of a
Rootless, grievous tree
Keep flashing while the
Sense numbing brew,
Burns through the blue veins
Could you gather, how shaken is
This sky of mine?
