Blue Sky Thinking

    Walking by this small hotel in Fairhaven, I spotted this fellow
    enjoying the sunny afternoon on the rooftop. Perfect way to enjoy summer.

    Blue Sky Thinking

    Returning to the box
    The crayons
    Obedient
    And cooperative
    Line up
    Like workers on an elevator
    Squeezed together
    Shoulder to shoulder
    Eyes on the floor
    Numbers blinking
    On and off
    Until all spaces fill
    And one crayon remains
    Apart
    Blue
    Lost without a box
    Unable to get off the ground
    Drawn apart
    Alone
    Away from the crowd
    Coloring the sky
    Cloudless

      What a treat to come to your site to see your pictures and then get to read one of your poems too! Thanks.
