winter sky

i wonder if the sky's asleep
underneath her quilt of clouds
when autumn's leaves have left

fragile flakes frost our eyelashes
breathing white against the air
the snow melts on our lips

the slumbering sky does not wake
but sometimes stirs in her sleep
an accidental peek

please, sleeping sky, do not sleep long
rest yourself, and then awake
cold loses novelty
