A Poem For Today | 14

Sky Piece 1

Towards the end of the Second World War, I looked like
a little ghost because of the food shortage. I was hungry.
It was getting easier to just lie down and watch the sky.
That's when I fell in love with the sky, I think.

Since then, all my life, I have been in love with the sky.
Even when everything was falling apart around me,
the sky was always there for me. It was the only constant
factor in my life, which kept changing with the speed of
light and lightning. As I told myself then, I could never
give up on life as long as the sky was there.

Tell us when you first noticed the sky.
Tell us when you first noticed that the sky was beautiful.

- Yoko Ono
