Indeed, Patrick; and to some extent the sky begins just above the ground;
but I am or was suspicious of the meaningfulness (now there's a word) of
looking down into the sky

since then, and it has been a busy day, I have bought a new saucepan and
written a poem, though these are unrelated activities, I have come to the
conclusion that looking down into the sky *was my experience

That's not enough. That doesn't make the poem ok; but it's a useful
location for more thought

I have various ways out of the maze
