My Home Sky

Watching the Sky (Written March 7, 2016)

I have not sat and enjoyed the wind in many a long busy day
I’ve hardly sat and watched the sunset as it turned from red to gold to gray
It’s been so long since I watched the clouds be pulled so swiftly by
I feel as if it’s been long indeed since I last knew the glorious sky.


=/ This is bittersweet for me. While I was away from home there was a lot that I missed, and the large open sky of Colorado was one of the things I missed most. I sorely missed have time and ability to sit and watch the sky. Now I am back. And the sky is as entrancing as I recall….but it is sad too. I want to show this to people that I might not see again for a very long time. I bragged about Colorado to my classmates all the time, and I spent a fair amount of that bragging talking about the sky. And now I get to see it, and I feel like turning around to point it out to them, to show them that I was being serious when I said the sky is amazing here….but I turn around just to realize that I’m by myself. It is… really bittersweet, to be where I want to be, without the people I want to be with. =/
