bowing to the sky....

my window was open, shade was pulled up....
my alarm went off and i opened my eyes.

there was the sky looking at me.

this beautiful morning sky.

i flipped my alarm off and snuggled into
my pillows to say good morning to the

what a way to wake up, i thought.

as i walked, the construction site was
quiet. i looked over....you can see a whole
lotta sky there now. they took the trees.
and i looked at that sky and just got
lost in it.

i walked up to my goodmorningworld spot and
laughed at myself.
ter, it's a highway. your big beautiful spot
is a highway. cars everywhere, just a little
spot of trees....
ahhh...but there's sky, i thought.
and i looked up at it.

turning the corner back onto my street
on the way home, i felt like i was walkin'
straight into the sky....

there's some song i heard once with a line in
it about the sky being like a lover to whom you
always belonged.

no kidding.

i love it so much.
and then when i stop and think that i have my
own sky inside me...(something i figured out
one day, and believe).....
well i just get this incredibly full feeling......

bowing to the sky this morning.
the one outside, and the one inside......

I'm reminded of the Glad Game.

"They took the trees but gave you the sky." How poetic. What a great way to turn a negative into a positive.
