12 Ways to See the Sky

A bird sees it as the limit,

The sun as his roommate,

The clouds as their mother,

The rain as a grandma,

An ant as something he will never reach,

A prisoner as the only light,

A house as its ceiling,

An eagle as his house,

A Christian as the door to Jesus,

Karina as a blanket,

Ashley as a beach;

I see it as the sky.

By Meliza, 7th grade
