Grapefruit Sky

Day 230 prompt: Pastel

suburban evening
running errands
driving toward
the sunset

small, clear voice
from the back seat
observes the sky
brushed
in broad strokes
of pastel

at the stoplight
I detach
from our to do list
and discover
she is right

that stripe of sky
is
the same color
as the inside
of the grapefruit
we shared
at breakfast
