i love it when the sky goes yellow, then melts
into oranges and reds,
creamsicles and sangrias by the 
sea. 

she doesn’t understand
adult situations
neither sex nor jobs nor taxes
three realms beyond her knowledge
she just likes to watch the sky.

my head’s not in the clouds,
although sometimes i see the fog
and hope the misty dew
touches my face
and cools my mind.

she’s not even in the atmosphere,
she dropped beneath the surface.
someone once said she now sits in the mantle,
melting away as we speak.

oranges and yellows and red,
fire and citrus
tucked beneath slabs of shifting stone.
 
and that's the truth!

    i love the gorgeous imagery in this piece, particularly in the first and last stanzas! “i love it when the sky goes yellow, then melts/into oranges and reds,/creamsicles and sangrias by the/sea.“ that’s such a pretty visual!
