5 things that live in the sky
A young boy turned to me and said
-Nothing lives in the sky here
-Well, when I was young...
5 skies that nothing lives in
-Why do you say that?
-You are still young...
-Not now, more young...
-I would lay in the ground and I would
look at all the things that live in the sky.
A dog, a snail, two people kissing,
a rhino that would turn into a horse
that galloped away and vanished.
Sometimes I would see my mother...
-Here nothing lives in the sky... Why?
-Well I guess people are so
attached to the earth and always
look to the ground.
Maybe the clouds
never taught them
about all the things that live
in the sky.
