escapril day 18: how did the sky look?

Look at us, small people, small hands,
With brains bigger than the sky.
I couldn’t count the stars that span
The air, let alone in my mind’s eye.

With brains bigger than the sky,
Oscillating colours – ever change in
The air, let alone in my mind’s eye.
Lilac, gold, peach, and the day begins.

Oscillating colours – ever changing in
The thoughts that swirl around a sunset.
Lilac, gold, peach, and the day begins in
Blue – clouds drift away. The sky forgets

The thoughts (that swirl around a sunset) –
Altocumulus, cirrus, cumulus, float among
Blue – clouds drift away, the sky forgets
How the mind looked while still young.

Altocumulus, cirrus, cumulus, float among
Memories, cloudlessly blue, and clear.
(How the mind looked while still young)
Halcyon, like a sigh – the billows reappear.

(Memories, cloudlessly blue, and clear)
Clouds and colours come and go, free
(Halcyon, like a sigh), the billows reappear.
In replayed thoughts, I wonder what I’d see.

Clouds and colours come and go, free,
But I couldn’t count the stars that span
Replayed thoughts. I wonder what I’d see
If I looked at us: small people, small hands.
