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

was Rachel,

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.
