The same sky

the same sky 
as in the city 
but vaster here 
above this pastureland, 
my thoughts given their space

  1. The spirit is transported in the vastness of open space. You've captured that beautifully, here, Janet.

  2. Ah, but it's not the same sky psychologically, is it? Some of us need that spaciousness. A very relatable poem!

  3. thank you, wendy and jenny.

    I think I'm one of those who, at least at this point in my life, needs that spaciousness or vastness.

  4. The same sky, but not the same effect for sure. My thoughts need space, too. Well said, Janet!

  5. It does seem that vast spaces give rise to vast thoughts.
