Painting The Sky
By EmmaLee Farns
It was a summer evening
riding in the car with friends.
The music was loud,
echoing in my ears
bouncing off of my many thoughts.
The only thing I could think about
I knew she had painted
the sky for me that night,
For there was a beautiful sunset.
I hung my feet out of the window
and closed my eyes,
trying to clear my many racing thoughts
feeling the wind blowing against my feet.
And I finally felt peace.
