sky today

the sky today’s more blue
than i can remember
the clouds all look thin,
friendlier than december

and if i feel down, who
around should i blame?
back at home or at school,
my safe fate is the same

so projects, tests, job stuff
…or dumb arguments
mean less than old branches
dropping leaves on the fence

a meeting, class, headache
and a late campus tour
burn me out, stretch me
but hope does so much more
