12 Ways to See the Sky

Posted November 8, 2010 & filed under Notebook.

A bird sees it as the limit,

The sun as his roommate,

The clouds as their mother,

The rain as a grandma,

An ant as something he will never reach,

A prisoner as the only light,

A house as its ceiling,

An eagle as his house,

A Christian as the door to Jesus,

Karina as a blanket,

Ashley as a beach;

I see it as the sky.

I flew up real high.
I saw houses so small they looked like dirt.
I saw clouds above me.

We had to go see the animals of Africa
across the ocean. The elephants came
and they made lots of good noise.
Then the tigers and bears came.

I could see the trees so small
that they looked like broccoli.
I saw the gorillas come out
and then I saw a great big house,
and it was as tall as a tree. It was so high
I could almost see the windows
from up in the sky.
