Desert hands tell tales
of a hundred arid summers, but
you are no longer as cloudless as they

(there is a storm
creeping through blue, blue veins).

But tell the sky to keep her sorrow,
that grey cascade blurring against
eyelids and horizons;

and suppress her misbegotten
droplets, seeping into the sodden
ground underfoot—

for there is still sun in your sky eyes.
The blindness of blue, blue eyes.

I love the way you've described the sky as having 'blue, blue veins'. Heart I think this poem is brilliant. Clap

I like that one a lot because there is some sort of tension in me when reading it. Perhaps because of the words "storm" "vein""desert"and the whole third part is chillin. Beautiful!
