Live Life Like A Party That Never Ends

Poised on the precipice
of nowhere
the same place
the sky rose to the surface
and touched the sea
sinking into yesterday’s rain.
An extension of the ocean,
the sky was a little bay
waiting to empty into the sea.

this is my interpretation of your poem: The past gives birth to the future.. lol, my comments are usually more analytic than complimentary.. but I really liked these lines: 'The sky rose to the surface' 'Sinking into yesterday's rain..' 'Waiting to empty into the sea.' o=
