today I was holding up the sky and I dropped it.

accidentally

slipping my hand from the left side

a fraction too far up the sphere.

my mistake felt

instantly,

too late.

the sky fell.

bright blue splatters all over the place

swirled up by puffy clouds

of grey sliding into white.

a mess.

a brilliant hued sight

but a mess

nonetheless.

I had best get busy cleaning it up.
