blue on blue

waters were made
to mirror the sky first of all,
so that the sky would see its infinite beauty
aquatically twinned.
horizon’s thin layer –
earth’s privilege of holding place
within the kiss of sky and water –
matters no more
when, blue on blue,
the sky presses itself narcissistically
against the shivering ripples
in search for itself.
have you ever wondered
how deep the smallest lake can be
in order to hide inside of it
all of sky’s secrets?…
