Sky

And there
the sky
and then
never
again.

  1. Short but surprisingly powerful. It gave me an image of death dropping from the sky—bomb. One minute you’re looking up, and the next second—you’re gone.

    • Thank you! I agree it can be read as such. My focus was mainly on the ever changing nature of the sky; how as it is it will never again be, and how this reflects life in general, but I really like your interpretation.

      • Oooh, that’s a very lovely way of looking at it—definitely more positive than mine, haha. I guess it’s my Lebanese heritage and history coming out. (Especially with what’s going on in Syria, death from the sky is an all too common item on the news). But I love the notion of an ever-changing expanse in parallel with everyday life. Nice one!

      • I agree about the connection to the piece with the current situation with what is occurring in Syria and other countries, and think for this reason it is a wonderful idea for the piece. Though tragic it brings a sense of the fragility of life, and our even more tragic response to the situation
