Is The Sky As Wide - Poem by Patti Masterman

Is time something does not exist,

Is nature just its deadly kiss,

Is freedom just a bell that rings?

And did God swindle all the saints

when he gave the angels wings?

Is love something thrown away,

Does death die to live another day;

Do the boneyards rise up while we sleep?

Lest we perish for answers where we lay-

is the sky as wide as worlds are deep?
