I’m really tired today. No time and worse, no energy, to get much of anything done on Sky. Doctor’s appointments, laundry, dog walking, Bible class… So I’m going to post a poem I found that gave me the notion for my title. It also fits the story in a weird sort of way.
The Other Side of the Sky
The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky, —
No higher than the soul is high.
The heart can push the sea and land
Farther away on either hand;
The soul can split the sky in two,
And let the face of God shine through.
But East and West will pinch the heart
That cannot keep them pushed apart;
And he whose soul is flat — the sky
Will cave in on him by and by
From the long poem Renascence, by Edna St. Vincent Millay
