Once Upon a Sky

We look up at the blue sky

So happy, so inviting

Calling us to come play in it’s warming sun rays

The wisps of clouds toying with our imagination

This is what bliss should feel like

We look up at the blue sky

 

We look up at the stormy sky

So grumpy, so powerful

Cracking thunder telling us to stay inside

The pelting raindrops stinging our skin

This is what violent-sorrow should feel like

We look up at the stormy sky

 

We look up at the sunset sky

So calm, so colorful

Unleashing the painter’s pigments into the grandest canvas

The dying hues flickering across our faces

This is what bitter-sweet memories should feel like

We look up at the sunset sky

 

We look up at the snowy sky

So heavy, so wise

Blanketing the world in a quiet one-ness

The snowflakes catch in our hair

This is what grief should feel like

We look up at the snowy sky

 

I look up at the sky

How familiar and yet forgotten

The once blue sky turned stormy

The once stormy sky turned sunset

The once sunset sky turned snowy

But that does not seem to matter anymore

The sky will always be different without you here

The sky itself did not change

but I did

 

The blue sky will never be as inviting without you

The stormy sky will never be as powerful without you

The sunset sky will never be as colorful without you

The snowy sky will never be as wise without you

 

Your blue, sky blue, eyes will follow me from the heavens

I will never be the same without you.


 

Point of view from Violet Markey or ‘Ultraviolet Remarkey-able’ as Finch likes to call her in All the Bright Places. I finished the book on Wednesday, and though it was not my favorite, but it was very enjoyable.

  1. You must live in the same place that I do – all this can happen within the same day – so you can be on an emotional roller coaster by just looking up!
