Sky-Minded - Poem by Delilah Miller

Blue sky,
blue sky.

Looking at you, wishing the day by.

Blue sky,
purple sky.

Storm coming in, here it is, there's the eye.

Blue sky,
grey sky.

The earth is wailing, the thunder yells, and the clouds cry.

Blue sky,
grey sky,
black sky.

Tore away at the moon, swallowed stars, listened to the sun die.

Black sky
Green sky
Orange sky
Red sky
Pink and yellow and mean sky.

Come on and roll in; it's only in my mind.

    I love the last line, It's only in my mind. Disasters can befall anyone, but how we handle them is what matters; Yes, I agree; we need to be sky-minded, look at the broader picture. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Amazing expression of sentiments through the colours of sky. Great articulation. I quote:
    Pink and yellow and mean sky / Black sky / Green sky / Orange sky / Red sky / Pink and yellow and mean sky / Come on and roll in; it's only in my mind. (Report) Reply
