Sky Poems : : This Thirst

This Thirst

This thirst,
this hole
that wants more
no matter what.

There is no well deep enough
to quench it.
There is no rain hard enough
to cool it.

When you are parched and cracking,
when you are longing for anything
other than what you have,
imagine a cavern deep underground
gleaming with crystal,
glistening with gold.

Would you ever think to fill it?

Some Thoughts

and then be ready for what will
come pouring from the spring."
