Twilight

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.

  1. Hi Robin. Would it be OK to feature this poem on my blog (with appropriate citation and link)? I’m doing a post about reading for pleasure and not having to analyse everything we read. This would be a great example of something that doesn’t need to be analysed to be enjoyed. Let me know. Thanks.
