How is it the same sky

I floated endlessly

On my back

Arms outstretched

Looking up at a sky

That seemed so close that I could reach out and touch its beauty

Looking up at clouds that looked so soft

That they would catch and soothe anyone’s fall

Even mine

All around me were people laughing and talking

Blissfully unaware

Of the moment I was having

Just me and that perfect fucking sky

I could feel the sun warming my skin all over me

Both weathering and rejuvenating me

I wish I could have stayed

Floating in that perfect moment


Just hitting the pause button on the story of my life

To revel in the beauty of the world around me

Above me

No pain of suffering

Only peacefulness

It was only out of the corner of my eye

That I could see a dark angry cloud inching closer

But it was in that moment of perfection that

I realized I could just close my eyes

And then

I could pretend that it wouldn’t take away my beautiful sky

And then

I could hold on to that feeling

Just a little while longer

Suspended in time

Baptized beneath a perfect sky

Floating weightlessly and without worry

Still me

But different

My soul; no longer restless

Just calm

Beneath my perfect infinite sky

  1. Your wife is an amazing writer. So much passion in what she writes. Its the kind of stuff no one really wants to talk about…..but has experienced it at some point at some level of their own. Keep writing—you will impact many lives.
