Missing the sky

I havent been around lately, as if anyone noticed ;p
Anyway tonight I was thinking about the new Rami grammar (yeah, I'm restarting
Daimyo yet again, nth time's a charm), and, trying to keep the new principles
for vocabulary in mind....ran into a very odd roadblock on my first
Rami can't have a word for "sky".
The sky is not a thing... it is not a direction, really... I don't think it
can be a verb... It's just an abstract concept, an idea.
I don't even really know how to translate it.
What *is* the sky, in concrete terms?
All the circumlocutions I can come up with can't describe the sky in general,
only in part--after things that are in the sky (occasionally) or the color
that the sky is (occasionally).
Well.. I am sort of left with some kind of derivative of "above".
