BLUE SKY

“Everywhere you go,
the sky is blue.”

8 April 2013 December 22:00
“Everywhere you go,
the sky is blue.”

That’s what my grandmother
used to say.
And I used to think:
“What does she mean?
“The sky is not blue everywhere,
not even here!”

Some days are bright,
some days are grey.

Years passed,
and still I was puzzled
about what my grandmother
used to say.

I left my homeland
my memories,
my childhood
for good.

And I was still baffled.
The sky in exile was always grey!

But now, I think about
my native soil,
my mother,
my nanny, my father
the blue sky and my grandmother.

I look up at the sky,
and I am no more in exile.

My heart is free
like a sparrow
singing on a tree.

Free of all the devilish thoughts:
the prince of the darkness
the shadow of the nights
the dragon, the witch,
the sun and moon’s fight,
the monster, the div.
My heart is full of love
and what I’ve achieved.
