Sometimes I wish the world was as simple as the sky.
Those two blinking dots rising one step at a time aren’t planes. They’re fairies flying higher, chasing each other beside the twilight clouds.
That purple swirling one over there is a dolphin. Its mouth is open, ready for fish. Ready for us.
I wait for it to move. But instead I watch the fairies fly over the dolphin with ease. It never pays any attention to them.
And I know the world can’t be that simple.
