Sky Child


By Kelvin M. Knight

She loved clouds, loved wandering through the sky with them as she meandered through this wood. Clouds were the sky’s lungs, and she breathed the sky.

When the sun shone, so did her smile. When rain fell, her eyes belonged to the imminent rainbow. When a rainbow blossomed she felt lightheaded and giddy. When thunder clapped, she sang. Songs from her past. Songs from her present.

Now the sky danced around her. Lost and found, she sat cross-legged in her parent’s wood. Twirling leaves in her fingers, she flopped open her notebook and lived this poetry swelling her soul.

Kelvin has been drabbling for nearly three years. His first collection of flash fiction, FAITH in a FLASH, is out now.
