Way Up There

Way Up There

Looking through the window every morning
The sky, big and blue would call to me
It’s clarity and open expanse, a welcoming sight each day
Up there I would send my dreams to be carried on the wind
My deepest, secret wishes hidden from spying eyes 
Cloud cover keeping them for me in secrecy
Rain-filled cumulus would promise to send the curious running 
instead of staring up in wonder at the magnificence
The noise of thunder, always my friend, scaring others away
that I might dream alone of flying high above everything
Away, away, away from the sadness here below

Linda Lee Lyberg is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight.  D'Verse is celebrating its 
11 year anniversary. Linda has given us some quotes from her favorite movie,
Breakfast at Tiffany's based on the novel by Truman Capote. She has asked us
to write a poem of 11 lines using one of the quotes as inspitration.
I chose this one below, except I took another direction:

"It’s better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes.” 
― Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories
