I saw the sky...

“I saw the sky and it was all alone. The air was calm and the weather was cool...”
I saw the sky and it was all alone.  The air was calm and the weather was cool.  I walked along a road, slightly worn.  I walked along a road uneven with patches of mossy green and shiny crystal stones.  
I tried to reach down to pick one up, but I fell forward.  I was falling...falling into my momentum.  The stones remained behind me.  I started to let go. 
I forgot the stones.  I felt light, like my path was easier now.  My momentum was swifter. Now I was coasting on a torrent.  I was a fallen leaf, missing my tree.  I was floating down a creek through a grove of reveries. 
I was passing under the sky on a creek tumbling into ebbs and over scenes, floating into trickling pools, and eddies of silver-linings. 
I saw the sky and it was all alone.  But then the wind began to blow.  I saw myself, as a felted strand.  I felt a tug, then a lift.  I closed my eyes, opened my mind and then I gave it a go.  I made a wish, and so was so. 
I caught the breeze, like the breeze caught a bee.  I coasted along and it was so, very, eas-y.     I floated up and around and upside down.  I was a little silver kite, a dandy of a dream. 
I saw the sky, and it was a sight to see.  The SKY was BEAUTIFUL, the SKY was ME!
