Open Sky Country

It was a green grass day in the hills

and we lay in fields that thirsted for the sun

sipping our visions of the sky

A lonely road passed by us on the way to yesterday

None who walked there stopped to say hello

too busy with their eyes ahead to the next bend

outrunning something you and I never saw following them

only their desperation to get out of the hills

and back into open sky country

Strange how easy it can be to get used to things.

  1. Neat! We’re both on country roads today. 🌱✨Thanks so much for liking my post; very happy I got to see this one. :)) I love this phrase: “and we lay in fields that thirsted for the sun / sipping our visions of the sky” – beautiful!
