Sky-High

Falcon flying

Day 322 prompt: Sky-High 

while wandering
a lakeside path
the little boy looks up

Where does the sky begin?

grandpa stretches
one long arm as high
as he possibly can

Beyond my reach, I guess.

across the gray lake
beyond a green expanse
a screen of blue-black pines

Who decides the boundary?

grandpa gathers
wisdom from
a falcon’s spiral glide

The birds draw circles at its edge.
