Odd Walking Thoughts – The Late Sky

The late sky came and we breathed it well. We struck out through the mess of brush and trees and listened to the wind. We found him dead on the opposite side of the ravine. His eyes were not closed and one of us asked why not. The wind answered, ‘Because this was the best moment never to close them.’ -copyright 2016 M. Taggart

    His eyes were not closed; they were soft, relaxed, but still sparkly green, even though I knew he was not behind them anymore. He was gone somewhere else. That didn’t stop me from trying everything I could to bring him back.
