Is it the sky?

The sky is a vast
shadow above me
or is it the clouds?

Below is the vast sea
of human faces
tired worn out
racing for the shadows
or is it the clouds
or is the sky?

I reach out to the shadows
to feel close
closeness that seems
strange at times
the looming faces
the shadows
the stars
the swirling mind
the clouds, the sky?

At times
everything seems so distant
distant
like the shadows
like heaven
i will reach someday.
