The Blue Sky – a poem

The Blue Sky Poem Alok Mishra


It’s blue
or at least for the eyes that see
it from down here, standing
on the earth.
Since birth,
it should have been so
and from the times I could see
and realise things so and so,
unchanged in its pattern or hue –
yes, it has been blue.
Sitting on the lonely roof
in a weeping noon
or confusing evening,
I kept staring right into the eyes
of this vast battleground
where Gods once took each other on
and showered mercy upon humankind.
Today I can see;
tomorrow I might be blind.
It’s blue and it’ll be so, believe me;
the patient blue sky doesn’t have any axe to grind!
