The Blue Between

The Blue Between

Everyone watches the clouds,
naming creatures they’ve seen.
I see the sky differently,
I see the blue between--

   The blue woman tugging
   her stubborn cloud across the sky.
   The blue giraffe stretching
   to nibble a cloud floating by.
   A pod of dancing dolphins,
   cloud oceans, cargo ships,
   a boy twirling his cloud
   around a thin blue fingertip.

In those smooth wide spaces,
I see a different scene.
I see those cloudless spaces,
I see the blue between.
